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.

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.
