A Pennsylvania nursing home resident who died days after a fall has been identified as a 64-year-old woman. Judith Bliger, of Blair County, fell out of a mechanical lift at Laurel Crest Nursing Home earlier this month. She was treated and released from the hospital immediately following the incident. She died three days later.
Sadly, the Laurel Crest Nursing Home had been operating under a provisional license because of several deficiencies within the facility. One of those deficiencies included the care home’s lifting procedures.
