As New Jersey and Philadelphia nursing home abuse lawyers, we have been randomly viewing the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services report cards for New Jersey nursing home. The State of New Jersey publishes these reports for each nursing home and long term residential facility in New Jersey. We have been reviewing the inspection summary reports for different nursing homes and reporting on those that have a large number of citations. It is important to review these reports to be aware of any signs of possible nursing home abuse.
Sterling Manor in Maple Shade, NJ
Today we are posting on Sterling Manor. Sterling Manor is a nursing home that has 124 long term patient beds under its care. It is located in Maple Shade, New Jersey in Burlington County. Sterling Manor had 3 routine inspections over the two year period from November 2008 until October 2010. It also had 14 complaint inspections during that same time period. The Sterling Manor nursing home was cited for physician visit issues relating to care/notes/orders etc., as well as residential record issues, life safety code violations, and bed sores. (As we have posted on many occasions, bed sores, themselves, are signs or nursing home abuse.)
Problems relating to the treatment and prevention of bed sores is also one of the reasons the facility received a complaint inspection as recently as July 2010. Another complaint inspection occurred due to food sanitation and preparation issues. These types of issues are what can lead to claims of nursing home abuse. It is important if you plan on having your loved one cared for in any nursing home, including Sterling Manor in Maple Shade, that you review these State of New Jersey Licensing and Evaluation inspections, to make sure it is a safe environment free from abuse.
