New patients aren't being accepted into Minnehaha County's detoxification center after the state discovered safety problems at the facility.
The order, released Wednesday evening, found that the center scored a 55 percent, putting it on probation. The center got the order Tuesday from state officials who had inspected the facility over a two-day period last month. The facility can't accept new patients until the county submits a plan of correction.
The county commission's administrative officer Ken McFarland says the plan has already been submitted and hopes patients will again be accepted very soon.
