Last evening, editor Joe Albero received word from Jim Mathias about the situation at Hartley Hall reported on Monday morning here on Salisbury News.
His message goes as follows:
Good evening.We will keep you all abreast of additional actions and information as they come available.
As a result of your post, Monday May 15, 2017, and my concern for the public's safety, I contacted the Acting Secretary of the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. This acton caused the Office of Health Care Quality to survey Hartley Hall on site today, May 16, 2017. As a result, the Office of Health Care Quality is conducting an investigation as empowered by their federal authority. The final report will likely be issued in approximately two weeks, and will be a public document. I will keep you advised.
