Nursing Home in Lancaster County, PA Is Shut Down Due to Problems

According to an article on LancasterOnline.com, Village Vista Manor in Manor Township, Lancaster County, has been closed by state and federal authorities because of problems with the quality of care. Its last resident left on April 21.

In early April, the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid broke off its relationship with Village Vista. As a result, the nursing home could no longer care of Medicare or Medicaid patients.

State inspectors found multiple problems at the facility over the past year. According to state records, some problems included residents who complained the bathing water was too cold and that hot water had to be warmed in the microwave; reports of bruises that were not investigated; failure to provide ongoing activities for residents; a report that the home had operated without a dietitian for several years; and failure to investigate and prevent falls from beds and wheelchairs.

The state put the home on a provisional license on April 9. The home’s license was then revoked 6 says later.
