New Nursing Home Task Force Forms in Pa

WICU12 HD WSEE Erie, PA News, Sports, Weather, Events
Reports of nursing home abuse and neglect across Pennsylvania and right here in the Erie area have lead to the formation of a new state-wide task force.

On Wednesday Secretary of Health Karen Murphy announced the Nursing Home Quality Improvement Task Force.

It's after allegations of senior mistreatment at 14 nursing homes operated by Golden Senior Living.

As we reported, the Golden Living Center- Western Reserve, in Millcreek, is one of the facilities named in a lawsuit filed by Attorney General Kathleen Kane in July.

Relatives of residents there reported things like malnutrition and drug overdoses.

The new task force combines accredited experts in long term care management and members of state leadership.

They're charged with finding ways to improve care and ensure the safety of residents.

A nursing home task force is a great idea. I hope all states start this up.
