ST. MARY CENTER FOR REHABILITATION & HEALTHCARE - Inspection Results Scope of Citation
Number of Residents Affected
By Deficient Practice
Initial comments:

Based on an abbreviated survey in response to a complaint completed on October 19, 2016, at St. Mary Center for Rehabilitation and Healthcare it was determined that the facility has a deficiency that has the potential for minimal harm to residents as related to the requirement of 42 CFR Part 483 Subpart B Requirements for Long Term Care Facilities and the 28 PA Code, Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Long Term Care Licensure Regulations.

 Plan of Correction:

483.10(b)(2) REQUIREMENT RIGHT TO ACCESS/PURCHASE COPIES OF RECORDS:Least serious deficiency and is isolated to the fewest number of residents, staff, or occurrences. This deficiency has the potential for causing no more than a minor negative impact on the resident.
The resident or his or her legal representative has the right upon an oral or written request, to access all records pertaining to himself or herself including current clinical records within 24 hours (excluding weekends and holidays); and after receipt of his or her records for inspection, to purchase at a cost not to exceed the community standard photocopies of the records or any portions of them upon request and 2 working days advance notice to the facility.


Based on a review of facility documentation and staff interview, it was determined that the facility failed to provide copies of the clinical record to the resident's legal representative within two working days of the request for one of two residents reviewed. (Resident CR1)

Findings include:

Review of a request made by Resident CR1's legal representative dated June 2, 2016, revealed that the resident's responsible party requested copies of all of the resident's medical records prior to his death on December 12, 2015.

In an interview with the Nursing Home Administrator on October 19, 2016, at 1:15 p.m., it was confirmed that the clinical record had not been sent as requested.

28 Pa. Code 201.29(d) Resident rights.

I hereby acknowledge the CMS 2567-A, issued to ST. MARY CENTER FOR REHABILITATION & HEALTHCARE for the survey ending 10/19/2016, AND attest that all deficiencies listed on the form will be corrected in a timely manner.
