Supporters Rally For Nursing Home In Danger Of Closing (WPXI Pittsburgh)


Posted to Nursing, Nursing Jobs

A group of about 100 people gathered Wednesday night for a vigil to try and help save a Butler nursing home.

Supporters met at Diamond Park in the City of Butler. That’s right across from the courthouse.

Lots of car horns and cheers were heard at the event.

Butler County commissioners are considering selling the home to a private company.

Employees worry about the impact this would have on residents. Brenda Riott is a housekeeper. She said, “It’s disgusting that Butler County isn’t taking care of elderly and their frail. It’s a tragedy, it’s disgusting.”

Workers also worry that a sale could mean much lower wages and possibly lost jobs.

No word on when a decision might be made.
