The Daily Beast had an article about the investigation into the nursing-home death of the father of Trump’s ex-security advisor H.R. McMaster Jr. in Philadelphia last month. According to the Philadelphia Medical Examiner’s Office, 84-year-old H.R. McMaster died at Cathedral Village nursing home in Pennsylvania and suffered “blunt impact head trauma”. Philadelphia State Police have labeled the death “suspicious.”
The allegations are that McMaster Sr. did not receive proper care, according to 6ABC. McMaster supposedly fell, hit his head and was placed in a chair, then died, 6ABC reported. The senior was admitted to the facility after having a stroke, the station said.
“As soon as we became aware of the alleged incident, we began an internal investigation and contacted the appropriate authorities,” Cathedral Village said in a statement to CNN, adding the “safety” and “welfare” of the patients is the facilities “utmost priority.”
However, over the last two years, Cathedral Village has failed four state inspection reports, according to Pennsylvania Department of Health records.
Two years ago, the nursing home failed to provide one-on-one activities for a clinically depressed patient who also had a stroke, state records show. According to the report, the only activity the patient had was a “television in the room.” That year, the facility also failed to keep accurate clinical records, reports show.
