Complaints spur inspection of newly privatized York County nursing home
A series of complaints led officials from the state Department of Health to investigate Pleasant Acres nursing home in York County in early October, just days after the county completed the sale of the facility to a Philadelphia-based company, the York Dispatch reported on Wednesday.
Four complaints regarding the nursing home involved loose baseboards in two areas, food and liquid remnants on floors and air vents in some halls covered in a white substance, according to the York Dispatch.
Pleasant Acres' plan of correction stated that workers at the nursing home immediately addressed the infractions in the complaints around or shortly after the time of the health department's investigation.

In May, the York County Board of Commissioners approved the sale of then-county-owned Pleasant Acres to Premier Health Care Management for $30.8 million.
The deal was expected to close in July, according to previous Business Journal reporting. The York Dispatch's reporting suggests the transaction was completed in the fall.
