Nursing Home Fined for Lack of Supervision

A nursing rehabilitation center has been fined in connection with an incident in which one resident had a violent outburst after being accused of sexual assaulting another resident.
According to a state health official, the rehabilitation center was not cited in connection to the alleged sexual assault but for failure to supervise the accused resident during the outburst.

In February, a resident of the center accused a roommate of sexual assault and when the accused resident was confronted about the allegation, the person became violent. The police were summoned and the accused resident was arrested and charged with breach of peace.

An investigation was concluded and determined that there was not enough evidence to substantiate a sexual assault had taken place. The administrator of the nursing home indicated that said she did not have reason to believe the sexual assault occurred. For more, read the story.
