Nurse's Aide Charged with Neglect and Abuse After Failing to Feed Her Patient

A former nurse aide at a nursing home has been sentenced on abuse and neglect charges according to the attorney general and the Office of Medicaid Fraud and Abuse Control. The former aide was sentenced to one year of jail for neglecting to feed a patient in her care.

The aide's sentence has been traded for a year probation as long as she remains on good behavior. In addition, she cannot work with vulnerable adults or children,  in the health care industry or for a Medicare or Medicaid provider. She must also complete 100 hours of community service and cooperate with any additional investigations related to the facility.

This former employee is the third former nurse aid to be convicted in connection with abuse or neglect at the facility. Two other aides previously pled guilty and were both sentenced to 12 months in jail for reckless abuse and neglect of an adult. For more, read the story.
