As nursing home abuse lawyers in the Philadelphia and New Jersey area, we are continuing our posts on nursing home and long term care facilities that have had numerous citations arising from their New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services inspections. Today we are going to discuss a long term care facility that has 186 long term patient beds located in Camden County, New Jersey. The Silver Care Health Center, located on Brace Road in Cherry Hill, has been cited for a number of violations.
Silver Care Health Center Violations
Silver Care Health Center has had two routine inspections in the two year period from November 2008 through October 2010. During those two routine inspections, the Silver Care Health Care Center was cited for 31 deficiencies. The Silver Care nursing home was cited for numerous violations, i.e. life safety code standard violations, housekeeping, drug regimen not being free of unnecessary drugs, and life safety from fire issues. A number of these deficiencies were considered widespread and able to cause more than minimal harm.
It is important to check the reports on any nursing home or long term care facility you may be using for your loved one. It is important to investigate the cited deficiencies to make sure that nursing home abuse is not occurring, and that the potential for that abuse doesn’t exist. Silver Care’s level and frequency of deficiencies are red flags that must be explored to make sure your loved does not fall victim to nursing home abuse.
