How to Report a Nursing Home to the State of Pennsylvania
When you and your loved one decide it’s time for them to move into a nursing home to get the care they need, you’ll undoubtedly want to find the best facility for them. With so many facilities to choose from, the decision isn’t always easy. When you do pick one, however, you expect the nursing home to provide their residents with outstanding and attentive care.
According to the Pennsylvania Department of Health, more than 80,000 state residents live in more than 700 nursing homes throughout the state. When a nursing home fails to provide the 24-hour, long-term care they are required to provide, a report can be made to ensure the facility is investigated and the residents are safe.
