Massachusetts nursing home fined $175K, owner agrees to step down

Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey reached a settlement agreement with a Rowley-based nursing home over failure to implement appropriate infection control procedures at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Sea View Retreat was fined $175,000 and the owner, Stephen Comley II, agreed to no longer own, operate or manage a long-term care facility in the state, according to a Nov. 3 news release from the attorney general's office.

The settlement comes after a June 2020 investigation. The attorney general's office received several complaints that the facility failed to follow basic infection control procedures required by the state.
