Nursing Home Employee Continued to Work after Allegations of Sexual Assault

A certified nursing assistant was permitted to return to work after he allegedly sexually assaulted a patient prior to a second complaint of sexual assault. The first victim’s report of abuse was investigated but determined to be unfounded. Because the investigation was determined to be unfounded, the nursing assistant was allowed to return to work.

The nursing assistant was arrested after the second victim under his care came forward with allegations of being assaulted while he was assisting her in using the bathroom. Both victims state that the nursing assistant had been professional up until the time of the incidents.

The nursing home contacted police on both occasions but are reluctant to give details about the employee's background. Instead, they issued a press release saying that they are working with local authorities on the issue. For more, read the story.
