.}LOCKADE PHILA. NURSING HOME:
Employees protest for unpaid earnings

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Nurses'
4ars blocked the driveway of the
idilapidated and bankrupt Sarah Allen

or 143 elderly, mostly bedridden
b atients promised, "We're not going to
"lt them take the people away."
'Pennsylvania Welfare Department
officials, alleging that care is substan-
dard, announced plans Wednesday to
transfer the residents to a state-
operated facility 12 miles away. That is
when the protesting employees, who
have worked without pay since Aug. 17,
set up the blockade.
*GOV. DICK Thornburgh said yester-
'' y he had canceld the plans for
moving the patients out of the
Philadelphia area and that he hoped
0they could be placedin local facilities.
' H1 directed the state secretaries of
elfare, health, and aging to cooperate
with a court-appointed bankruptcy
"rustee in trying to solve the home's
"problems. "Our concern is for the
zhealth and welfate of the patients,"
Thornburgh said.
He said his adininistration would do
"nything it could to help the trustee,
Philadelphia Bar Chancellor Leon
z4Katz, to ease the situation of the patien-
"PAY ME my money and they can
take every patient out," said nurse
'Stephanie Tyree. "They've played with
"'ns long enough. We have children who
want to eat."
That solutin was rejected by attor-

"Its all rather vague," Councilman
idward Hood (R-Fourth Ward) said
yesterday. The developer told him HUD
'would still approve a rent subsidy if

be built on the site, Hood said.

mumvent our whole planning process,"

before the HUD deadline, Councilman
David Fisher CR-Fourth Ward) said.
"Council shouldn't be put at the mer-
cy of developers," said Fisher. "Lots of
senior citizens have told me they don't
want to live in an eleven-story high
rise.

councilmembers and city residents

Historically, Council votes on plan-

patients. And it was opposed, too, by
many among the home's 120 workers
who stayed on the job out of compassion
,for the crippled and the senile confined
to the old, seven-story brick building.
"It's not a beautiful place, but it's
home," said 'nurse Cleo Armstrong.
The structure was converted to a nur-
sing home 12 years ago by the African
Methodist Episcopal Church after
Women's Hospital vacated the
premises.
OFFICIALS OF the northwest
Philadelphia home, which had given
the state permission to relocate the
patients, went into federal bankruptcy
court Wednesday night, seeking to
reorganize the non-profit institution.
"We're going to stop any attempt at
immediate removal, because if such
people are transferred without proper
advance precautions a large number

are likely to die," attorney Gold said.
"We will go into federal court for an in-
junction if necessary."
Gold said that he didn't oppose even-
tual shutdown of the facility, but that
relocation must be carried out accor-
ding to proper federal procedures. That
usually takes three to six months.
"A PATIENT must be in decent
physical and psychological condition to
be transferid, else there is a good
chance he could die," Gold said.
The planned transfer to the South
Mountain Restoration Center, 50 miles
west of the state capital at Harrisburg,
was ordered by Welfare Secretary
Helen O'Bannon as "an action of last
resort."
William Bechtel, a 65-year-old
patient, thought that was going too far
and wanted to stay right where he was.
"It just needs some repairs," he said.
GOLD INSISTED that conditions at

the home, despite previous health
citations for rodents and roaches, are
acceptable and that the state has never
canceled its certificate of operation.
Health Secretary Gordon MacLeod
said there was no immediate emergen-
cy at the home, noting "The staff is
present, drugs are present, food is
present."
