As New Jersey and Pennsylvania nursing home abuse lawyers, we are continuing our series of posts on the deficiencies and citations of some local nursing homes. The New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services, Division of Health Facilities Evaluation and Licensing posts the results of both their routine and complaint inspections. It is important to check these reports for any nursing home that you may be considering for your loved one. Today we are going to focus on a nursing home in Camden County. This nursing home, the Kresson View Center, is located in Voorhees, Camden County, New Jersey. It provides long term in-patient care for 240 residents.
Kresson View Center Fails Inspections
The Kresson View Center had two routine inspections and 13 complaint inspections in the two year period from November 2008 through October 2010. The Kresson View nursing home was cited for a variety of deficiencies. These included the prevention and treatment of bed sores, medication errors of 5% or more, hazard and accident issues, and not being free from abuse/involuntary seclusion. The bed sore citation, although found to be isolated in nature, did show potential for more than minimal harm. The other above mentioned violations were found to occur in pattersn, and also showed the potential for more than minimal harm.
The Camden county facility of Kresson View was also cited in May of 2009 for a widespread deficiency involving sanitary conditions and food. The procurement, storage, preperation, and serving of food appeared to be unsanitary and potentially harmful. A deficiency is considered widespread when the scopes of the problems are pervasive in the facility and/or represents a systematic failure. A categorization of widespread refers to the entire facility population. These deficiencies can all be seen as signs of possible nursing home abuse and should be strongly considered before placing a loved one in the facility’s care.
