Why Are Some Nursing Homes Still Lying About Their Nursing Homes?
We’re still in the dark about why some nursing homes still are keeping quiet about their nursing homes.
Here’s why some facilities are hiding, and some aren’t.
“When the nursing home is closed, it’s a death sentence for the community,” said John Wiese, executive director of the Fairhaven Association of Nursing Homes.
“They’re literally on the edge of extinction.”
Wiese has been working in nursing homes for a decade.
He has seen the effects of the housing crisis firsthand.
In 2013, he was working as an administrator in a nursing home in New Jersey when he came across an article about a nursing facility that was struggling to stay open.
The nursing home had a waiting list, and a lot of the residents were homeless.
He called the New Jersey State Board of Nursing and was told the nursing homes could not keep the doors closed.
He said the nursing facility’s board member didn’t know how to deal with it.
The nursing home was then shut down and a building was constructed that housed more than 500 people, Wiesa said.
Wie said he and other nurses were outraged by the nursing facilities lack of transparency.
After the nursing center closed, Wie went back to the state board of nursing and told them about his experience.
He wrote an open letter to the board, explaining that while the nursing staff were willing to help keep the nursing unit open, they weren’t able to make any significant improvements.
He wrote that many nursing homes had been shut down in recent years because they weren�t making any improvements and weren�ve been closing for years.
He wanted the board to know that the nursing community was outraged by what had happened at Fairhaven and said they needed to find a way to fix this.
Nursing home officials did not respond to requests for comment.
We have not yet been able to confirm that the Fairfield community has been told the state of New Jersey closed Fairhaven.
However, in a letter dated July 4, 2018, Fairhaven’s governing body, the New York State Board, said in part that they are not aware of any state closure at Fairfield, but are working with the board as it looks into the matter.
The letter didn�t specify what the nursing agency did wrong.
Fairhaven officials have not responded to requests from NewsWorks for comment on this story.
