EXECUTIVE SUMMARY:

The objective of our review was to determine whether Jewish Home of Greater Harrisburg was in compliance with Federal and State staffing laws and regulations for nursing homes.  Based on our review of 72 direct care employees, Jewish Home generally complied with the Federal and State staffing laws and regulations that we reviewed.  A review of the direct care employees disclosed that Jewish Home did not obtain a current State background check for one direct care employee.  We recommend that Jewish Home assure that all newly hired employees have a background check that is less than 1 year old.
