Agencies Ensure Care at Rosewood Gardens

Agencies Respond to Ensure Care for Residents at Rosewood Gardens in East Greenbush

A multi-agency response took place on Saturday morning to ensure care for residents at the Rosewood Gardens nursing home in East Greenbush, officials announced.

All residents are safe and remain at the facility following the response, which was coordinated by the state Department of Health at the privately-owned facility.

The response started when a report was received regarding a lack of required nursing supervision at Rosewood Gardens. Nurses from an agency contracted by Rosewood Gardens apparently did not show up for the morning shift, and the lack of licensed nurses on the shift meant medicine could not be administered. Federal regulations require that a licensed nurse be on site at all times to administer medication.

The state Department of Health responded to the scene, along with representatives from the county Bureau of Public Safety, Bruen Rescue Squad, Mohawk Ambulance, East Greenbush Police Department, Albany Medical Center Hospital, county Medical Director, county EMS coordinator, and a representative from the County Executive’s office.

The facility was able to have nurses arrive by early afternoon, with state DOH and other agencies remaining on the scene to monitor the situation and check on residents. Senior rest homes like Rosewood are licensed and regulated by the state.
