Yesterday, June 11, several regional news sources published an article regarding the number of deaths attributed to COVID-19 in Bucks County nursing homes. The article included data on Lutheran Community at Telford indicating that our campus has seen 48 cases of COVID-19 and 8 deaths among residents in our health care center. This information is completely inaccurate.
After contacting various information outlets, we discovered the source of this data was attributed to the PA Department of Health. I have reached out to the PA Hospital and Health Care Association regarding this error. They in turn have confirmed our reporting is correct and are working to have this information amended in a timely fashion.
