Glen Arden received 15 citations for violations of public health code between 2018 and 2022, according to New York State Department of Health records accessed on April 7, 2022. The Goshen nursing home’s citations resulted from a total of three surveys by state inspectors. The deficiencies 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 provide residents with a level of care necessary to promote the healing of pressure ulcers. A September 2020 citation found that Glen Arden failed to ensure such. The citation specifically states that a nurse practitioner’s recommendations to promote the healing of a “new deep tissue injury” and scab on a resident’s toe “were not implemented timely.” In an interview, the nurse practitioner said that this lapse could potentially result in an infection. A plan of correction undertaken by the facility included the updating of the resident’s care plan and treatment of the resident’s wound.
