Longmeadow Nursing Home Under Investigation

A new report from the U.S. Department  of Health and Human Services is exposing patient problems at a nursing  center in Longmeadow.  

The statement of deficiencies was put together  regarding the Jewish Nursing Home of Western Massachusetts, indicating  that two dementia patients were found this summer with their heads stuck  in the side rails of their beds; one of them was dead.  

The nursing  home was criticized in the report for not taking corrective action with  the bed frames.  

The home has been told by the state of Massachusetts to  freeze patient admissions until it's found to be in compliance with  federal care standards.
