SCARSDALE, N.Y. – Employees, residents, family members, clergy and elected officials at Sprain Brook Manor, a rehabilitation/nursing facility in Scarsdale, are planning a candlelight vigil Thursday.

The vigil is to encourage Sprain Brook Manor's owners to improve working conditions at the facility.

It is set for 3-5 p.m. at the center, 77 Jackson Ave., Scarsdale.

In November, employees at Sprain Brook Manor held a forum to discuss serious problems in resident care with nursing home workers, Sprain Brook residents and their families, local officials and community leaders.

Nursing staff members said that they have been trying to negotiate with the owners for four years to allocate money that will alleviate the problems.

They point to serious health care problems among Sprain Brook Manor residents:

  • The worst rate of pressure sores of any nursing home in Westchester County and the fourth-worst in New York state.
  • The worst rate of urinary tract infections of any nursing home in Westchester County
