In today’s post, we are going to discuss a nursing home in Cumberland County, New Jersey that has been rated as below average by Medicare. As New Jersey and Philadelphia lawyers specializing in nursing home abuse cases, we feel compelled to continue to expose local nursing homes with below average ratings. We believe this service is important to protect families when dealing with placement or abuse and neglect issues that arise in long term facilities. Vigilance by family members is key to protecting loved ones when they become patients in any nursing home. All nursing homes are subject to inspections, and reviewing these inspections can help prevent bed sores, medication errors, and accidents that lead to abuse and neglect causing pain and even death to some patients.
Nursing Home Abuse at Cumberland Manor
The nursing home that we will discuss today is the Cumberland Manor nursing home located in Bridgeton, New Jersey. This nursing is a county government owned facility with 196 long term care beds. Medicare’s nursing home compare system gave this facility 2 out of 5 stars. This rating indicates that Cumberland Manor is a below average nursing home.
According to the NJ Division of Health Facilities Evaluation and Licensing, Cumberland Manor was routinely inspected 2 times between December 2008 and November 2010. During these inspections, Cumberland Manor was cited for 26 deficiencies. A few of these included failure to prohibit mistreatment and neglect, food storage and sanitary condition issues, failure to keep the facility free from accidents, and failure to keep medication errors below 5%. A nursing home with these types of deficiencies and this below average rating is the type that can lead to additional injuries, bed sores, and transfers to hospitals for acute care recovery from such issues. As we always indicate, family members must be vigilant and aware to protect their loved ones from nursing home and abuse.
