MAGGOTS FOUND IN FEEDING TUBE AT NURSING HOME

February 24, 2016 by admin

(CBS 21, Harrisburg, PA:  Published 02/11/2016, Kirker-Morgan, Donna, Web)

UPPER ALLEN TOWNSHIP, Pa. — Troubles have been reported at a West Shore nursing home since last year, but now there are reports that maggots were found in a patient’s feeding tube.

The information comes from Medicare.gov.  This facility and over 20 other Golden LivingCenters in Pennsylvania have been under fire by the Attorney General’s office which filed suit this summer.  This inspection of this center is from October 22 and it indicates very important issues were identified.  The inspection report says maggots were found in a patient’s feeding tube, with the nurse reporting “worm like bugs found crawling all around the PEG tube and surrounding tissue.”  The report also says feeding tubes were not changed as required, improper pest control was discovered, and improper hydration of patients was found. Those are just a few of the 31 deficiencies reported by inspectors on October 22, according to Medicare.gov.  Other Golden LivingCenters in the area are receiving a below average rating from that reporting site.

Call the experienced attorneys at Liever, Hyman & Potter, P.C., if you or a family member was injured in a Nursing Home.  Consultation is free.  We can obtain the records for you if we investigate the case.
