As NJ and PA nursing home abuse attorneys who are continually trying to expose long term care facilities showing signs of nursing home abuse and neglect, we focus today on a Burlington County nursing home with a well below average rating according to Medicare’s Nursing Home Compare System. Brandywine Senior Care At Moorestown, located in Burlington County, NJ, is a corporately owned, for profit long term care facility with a well below average Medicare rating. Brandywine Senior Care At Moorestown was routinely inspected twice between December 2008 and November 2010. During these two inspections, this long term care facility was cited for 15 separated violations. Among those violations were the failure to prevent the spread of infection, failure to properly store and serve food in a sanitary manner, and the failure to provide snacks for patients.
Although the facility received no specific citations regarding bed sores and/or pressure ulcers, the types of deficiencies cited can lead to the development of these bed sores. As we have mentioned many times, proper nutrition and maintaining general, overall good health is important in the prevention and care of bed sores. Brandywine was also cited for failing to keep a hazardous/accident free environment. This was rated as a widespread issue according to the NJ Division of Health Facilities Evaluation and Licensing. All of these citations are signs of nursing home abuse and neglect, and must be taken very seriously!
