The 10 Worst Nursing Homes in the Tri-County Area: #5

Nursing Home Abuse is a serious epidemic in the long term care industry. The attorneys at the Mininno Law Office are dedicated to doing their part in eradicating it.

Manor Care, Voorhees (Camden)

Fifth on our list of the ten worst nursing homes in the tri-county area is Manor Care in Voorhees, New Jersey. Manor Care is a for profit corporation participating in Medicare and Medicaid, and holding 120 certified beds. Manor care was found to have some very disturbing deficiencies (nursing home abuse). Inspections found that they failed at the following essential tasks of a nursing home or long term care facility:

• to provide treatment to prevent new bedsores or heal existing ones
• to make sure residents are safe from medicinal errors
• to make sure areas are free of dangers that can cause accidents
• to have a program in place that will prevent the spread of infection
• to keep residents apart from other residents if he/she has a communicable infection
• to keep accurate and appropriate medical records
• to review the work of nurses aides and provide the most up to date training for existing or new nurses aides
• to promptly give Doctors lab results
• to develop care plans that carry on after the residents’ stay
• to give care and service to get or keep the highest quality of life

Nursing Home Abuse: They were also found to have SIGNIFICANTLY lower than both National and New Jersey percentages when it came to patients that were given flu shots and pneumococcal vaccinations. They had higher than National and/or New Jersey percentages when it came to long and short stay residents with moderate to severe pain, high risk long stay residents with bed sores, long stay residents who are depressed or anxious, low risk long stay residents who lose control of their bowels or bladder, long stay residents with urinary tract infections, long stay residents who lose too much weight, and short stay residents who develop bed sores.
Bed sores are a sure sign of nursing home abuse and negligence, and if both long and short stay residents are developing them, Manor Care in Voorhees is guilty of being negligent. Nursing home abuse and negligence are an epidemic in the long term care facility industry, and serious steps must be taken to eradicate it.
