State threatens to take over NJ nursing home where bodies were stacked

The state of New Jersey has suspended new admissions at a nursing home where 17 bodies were found stacked in a morgue in 2020, citing the results of recent inspections in which staff members allegedly failed to do CPR or call 911 for unresponsive patients or provide lifesaving medicine for Covid patients. According to state officials, 16 residents at the facility have died from Covid since September. On Thursday, the facility, once known as Andover Subacute II but now known as Woodland Behavioral Health, was given 72 hours to respond to the report and address allegations of shortcomings or the state would revoke its license. The facility has now responded, a spokesperson for the state said, and the state is reviewing its response. As of Monday, the facility’s license had not been revoked. According to state inspectors:Inspectors also gave numerous examples of verbal abuse of residents. The inspections were conducted from Jan. 3 through Feb. 2. A woman who answered the phone at Woodland said, “As far as I know there is no comment.”As NBC News previously reported, during the early days of the pandemic, 83 residents died of Covid and bodies were found stacked at the facility. The federal government fined the owners $221,115 for not being in “substantial compliance” with federal regulations, and the state attorney general’s office began an investigation. The investigation is ongoing. The owners changed the facility’s name and accepted new residents. They are still being paid by Medicare and Medicaid, the taxpayer-funded programs that pay most costs for U. S. nursing home operators — even though one of the owners, Louis Schwartz, was an executive at a chain called Skyline Healthcare, which collapsed in 2019 amid accusations of neglect and financial mismanagement, which the chain denied. In a previous statement, the owners of Woodland Behavioral said, “The COVID-19 pandemic brought unprecedented challenges, and our heroic staff faced those challenges as best as they could. We continue to thank them for everything they did (and continue to do) to protect our residents.”In January, Louis Schwartz’s father, Joseph, the former owner of Skyline Healthcare, was arrested and charged with 22 federal counts of labor violations and failure to pay federal taxes. The top federal prosecutor in New Jersey, U. S. Attorney Philip Sellinger, charges that Joseph Schwartz failed to pay employment and unemployment taxes for the 15,000 employees he had at 95 facilities across 11 states. Joseph Schwartz, who is not an owner of Woodland Behavioral, pleaded not guilty to the federal charges. His lawyer, Robert Fedor, did not respond to a request for comment. Joseph Schwartz also faces 10 state felony charges in Arkansas connected to allegations of tax and Medicaid fraud, in addition to civil suits in Nebraska and other states. Joseph Schwartz pleaded not guilty in Arkansas. His attorney in Arkansas, Bill James, said his client would aggressively fight the state charges.

Join ACE with award-winning journalist Mike Wise for a fireside chat with the former Associate Chief Justice Frank N. Marrocco, Lead Commissioner. COVID-19 disproportionality affected seniors and persons with disabilities during the pandemic, especially those in long-term care. The ongoing indignities and harm these vulnerable members of society have faced have been reprehensible and for the large part preventable. Ontario’s Long-Term Care COVID-19 Commission brought to light the discrimination and institutional failures the senior population in LTC experience on a daily basis, and with deadly consequences. The Commission released a series of recommendations that require additional funding, legislative or regulatory amendments, and other supporting actions by government actors and long-term care homes. These recommendations plus the legislative changes we have already seen implemented during the pandemic bring significant changes to the Elder Law field of practice. ACE's 2021 Special Lecture includes a fireside chat with former Associate Chief Justice Frank N. Marrocco discussing the Long-Term Care Commission’s investigation and recommendations.We also welcome Charles Harnick, QC, Board Chair, bringing greetings on behalf of Legal Aid Ontario.Following the keynote presentation we held a hosted panel discussion between:Jane E.
