It is important for us, as nursing home abuse lawyers for New Jersey and the Philadelphia area, to review care facilities in the area for signs of nursing home abuse or neglect.

Eastern Pines Convalescent Center Puts Residents in Danger
This nursing home is a 141 long term care bed facility located in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Between November, 2008 and October, 2010, it was routinely inspected twice. These inspections are performed by the Division of Health Care facilities Evaluation and Licensing for the NJ Department of Health and Senior Services.
During these two inspections, 34 deficiencies were cited at the facility. Although there were a variety of deficiencies cited, some of the most severe had to do with abuse and neglect policies, patients’ rights to voice grievances without reprisal, infection control issues, and issues regarding sanitation. These deficiencies were found to be widespread, with a number of them alleged to cause immediate jeopardy to resident health and safety.
