Evergreen Commons Rehabilitation and Nursing Center received 24 citations for violations of public health code between 2018 and 2022, according to New York State Department of Health records accessed on June 24, 2022. The East Greenbush nursing home’s citations resulted from a total of six inspections by state surveyors. The violations they describe include the following:
1. The nursing home did not provide adequate pressure ulcer care. Under Section 483.25 of the Federal Code, nursing homes must offer residents necessary treatment and services to promote the healing of pressure ulcers and to ensure that residents admitted without such do not develop them unless their condition renders it unavoidable. A January 2022 citation found that Evergreen Commons Rehabilitation and Nursing Center failed to ensure such. The citation states specifically that the nursing home did not initiate treatment for two residents with pressure ulcers, did not complete treatment as ordered for one resident, and did not provide recommended pressure-reducing devices for two residents. A plan of correction undertaken by the facility included the assessment of the residents in question, the initiation of treatment for one of the residents, and the re-education of nursing staff.
