HARRISBURG (AP) – A state-run veterans nursing home in Chester County where 42 residents have died of COVID-19 failed to take steps to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, according to a new state Health Department report. Health inspectors say that Southeastern Veterans’ Center, a 292-bed facility in Spring City, ignored state and federal guidelines meant to control the virus in nursing homes. The lapses put 128 of the facility’s 154 residents in “immediate jeopardy” of serious injury or death, according to the Health Department.
