State Health Department investigating East Greenbush nursing home’s staffing issues

The New York State Health Department tells NewsChannel 13 they’re trying to figure out why a large number of nurses didn’t show up for work on Saturday.

Without a licensed nurse on hand, patients are not able to get medications.

The health department says it sent staff to Rosewood when they learned of the no-shows.

They say there is now enough staff.

No details of the investigation are being released.

NewsChannel 13 reached out to Rosewood for comment. As of early Monday evening, they hadn’t responded.
