Nursing Home Accountant Steals More Than $50,000 From Patients

A nursing home accountant’s bond is set at $10,000 for theft of over $50,000. She was caught stealing over the money from 5 residents by asking them to leave their checks blank and then writing her name as the recipient and depositing the checks into her account. The checks from the patients were meant to cover their rent money.

She was also found to have stolen money from other residents upon further investigation. According to a report, she "also reallocated a total of $78,285.39 from other residents, by applying portions of payments and refunds received by the facility to the accounts of the five residents in order to keep their rent payments current." She defended her actions by saying she had financial issues.
