TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Bethesda Gardens is responding to an injunction filed by the State of Indiana.
On Thursday, the facility's legal team submitted an "Answer and Affirmative Defense" to the state's claims.
The state alleges the facility was offering certain types of care only for licensed facilities.
In the response, Bethesda Gardens said it does operate as an unlicensed assisted living facility.
The facility denies staff intentionally provided services outside the legal limits.
Bethesda Gardens said the state's complaints were primarily associated with the memory care unit.
The facility said it gave notice on February 25th that the memory care unit was being discontinued.
It also said the resident death was unrelated to the complaints the state listed.
