The state has revoked a Delaware County nursing-care facility’s license following the arrest this month of three workers on allegations that they abused a patient.

A Department of Public Welfare report, released Friday, found “gross incompetence, negligence, and misconduct on the part of officials” at Quadrangle Sunrise Senior Living Center in Haverford as well as its parent company, Sunrise Senior Living of McLean, Va.

In a statement Friday evening, company administrators said they had filed an appeal, and expressed hope that they “can quickly resolve this unfortunate matter.”

The investigation into abuses at the center will continue, said Michael Race, a DPW spokesman. “It remains to be seen if this instance was an aberration,” he added.

Calls to Quadrangle, a 143-bed facility at 3300 Darby Rd., were not returned.
