Nursing Home Shut Down

Published on May 20th, 2010

NBC Connecticut had a tragic article about the outrageous condition of West Rock Health Care Center in New Haven.  Inspections by state investigators uncovered deplorable living conditions.  The West Rock Health Care Center closed its doors on May 14 after the findings.

Anthony Pinto has owned West Rock Health Care since 1998, but last year he ran out of money and had to file for bankruptcy. Pinto blames the Department of Public Health for closing him down.  Inspections found 37 pages worth of violations. Patients were found in beds that were "unmade and with an accumulation of soiled sheets," according to the Department of Public Health.  Residents’ hair was found to be "quite greasy and unkempt," according to the state report. It found "the facility failed to ensure medications were administered timely for four of four residents reviewed." Linens that were worn thin and brown; boxes of medical records soaked in pooling water; and a nurse who cleaned an open ulcer with the same "fecal smeared washcloth" used to clean the patient.
