A criminal investigation of Brighton Rehabilitation and Wellness Center is underway.
Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro confirms his office is looking into “conditions and practices” at the Beaver County facility.
In early August, Representative Conor Lamb sent a letter to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) requesting an immediate investigation into the performance of the facility’s management. Lamb also wants a review of allegations that claim residents were given hydroxychloroquine without state approval.
More than 70 Brighton Rehabd residents have died of COVID-19 and more than 300 residents and staffers have been infected.
