State Revokes Nursing Home’s License

The Department of Public Welfare recently revoked the operating license for the Quadrangle Assisted Living Community in Haverford, Pennsylvania

The revocation of the nursing home license is the result of abuse caught on video by the family of a 78-year-old female dementia patient. The family made previous complaints to the nursing home management, but received no response. A hidden camera was then set up in the 78-year-old’s room by her family. The camera captured nursing home employees violently shaking, unnecessarily stripping, kicking and punching the elderly woman.

Federal and state regulations alike require nursing homes and other long-term care facilities to comply with numerous guidelines regarding the treatment of patients. When a facility does not appropriately follow these rules, legal action can and should be taken. Pope & Howard P.C. has the knowledge necessary to ensure that your loved ones receive the proper care they deserve.
