9 Nursing Home Employees Arrested And Charged with Neglect, Embezzlement, And Death Of A Resident

A total of 9 nursing home employees have been arrested and seven of them related to the death of a nursing home resident. The charges include allowing the resident’s alarm to ring for two hours when she stopped breathing, embezzling Medicare funds, and numerous counts of neglect.

A whistleblower turned in the employees after feeling the need to expose what had happened to the 72-year-old resident whose family was told she died of a heart attack. An investigation took place after officials were alerted to the incident. For more, read the story.
