The Maryland  Department of Health and Mental Hygiene says it has suspended the license of  an assisted-living facility near Boonsboro after a patient with Alzheimer’s  disease suffered life-threatening injuries from allegedly falling through an  unfinished floor.

The agency said Tuesday that the Soma  Manor House could face permanent revocation of its license and  a fine.

Eighty-four-year-old Eileen  Rindone remains in serious condition at Shock Trauma in Baltimore. Her  daughter Michele  Carpenter says Rindone was scheduled for surgery Tuesday.

Soma Manor owner Dickson  Tabi couldn’t be reached immediately for comment. He is charged with  reckless endangerment and neglect for allegedly failing to secure the  second-floor during renovations.

Police say Rindone fell about  nine feet on Thursday. Tabi allegedly waited nearly eight hours before calling  an ambulance.
