Nursing Home Abuse Brings Indictments To Owner, Three Employees

Four individuals working for a nursing home chain have been indicted on 45 counts of criminal activity while acting on behalf of the company. Criminal activity involved allowing a series of incidents to occur at the nursing home facility and sexual activity of residents with dementia in the dining room while unsupervised. These incidents were a focus of 37 citations provided to the nursing home from the state department of health.

In an act to hide evidence, the individuals allegedly eavesdropped on interviews of nursing home employees with investigators and destroyed electronic evidence. The attorney general is leading the case against the employees and the nursing, “When a company and its senior leadership allegedly cover up patient abuse and neglect, it is a serious criminal matter where individuals must be held accountable.” For more, read the story.
