Report on nursing homes correction
? On February 23, we reported that an official survey done by the Longer Term Care Community Coalition said four Bronx nursing homes were issued violations for inadequate care.
The executive director of the coalition, Richard Mallot, has now told News 12 The Bronx that it made an error in the original report and the Parkview Rehabilitation and Nursing Care Center should not have been included because it had no violations.
In a statement, Mr. Mallot said, ??We brought this back to the Department of Health?s attention and it confirmed that it had made an error in its original report. We have since changed the report on our Web site to reflect this and will be printing a correction in our newsletter.?
