Two Resident Deaths from Pennsylvania Nursing Homes Transfers

According to reports from the Pennsylvania Department of Health, reported by Lancaster Online, two residents at separate Lancaster County nursing homes died after workers at each facility violated patient transfer policies

In both cases, the residents died of what the coroner determined were traumatic neck injuries after falling while being transferred by one worker instead of the required two. Reports of the two nursing homes, fail to name the residents or employees involved, but say the incidents happened on August 1, 2019 at Lancashire Hall and on September 8, 2019 at the Mennonite Home Communities.
