Quadrangle Inspection Report

FInd out the results of Quadrangle nursing home inspection by the Department of Health.

The Department of Health and Human Services Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services filed a survey report on Haverford's Quadrangle Nursing Home on June 16, 2011. 

Quadrangle was given grades of C and D, based on three situations, on a scale from A to L, with A being the least serious and L being the most serious.

A severity score of D through F means no actual harm was done, but there is the potential for minimal harm that does not impose immediate jeopardy, according to Medicare. A C score means no actual harm was done, with the potential for harm being minimal.

Report Findings

According to the report filed, based on a resident group interview, review of facility policy and procedure and an interview with staff, it was determined that the facility failed to ensure that residents were consistently provided with an
opportunity to vote in the Primary election.

Additonally, it was determined that the facility failed to provide nursing services consistent with professional and vocational standards by failing to address one resident's needs out of 18.

Nate, the publishing of the report on the Quadrangle is useful information. As an Elder Attorney I can say it's almost impossible to get through an inspection without some citations. It's important to look at the nature of the citations. The ones here, missing meds, can be serious. I once had a case where a night shift nurse failed to give a resident meds over a period of weeks, with very serious implications. As for the Quadrangle, when I attended their last open house after I received an invitation, since they knew I wrote a Senior News and Resources Blog for the Patch, they had someone follow me the entire time to watch who I was speaking to!
