Nursing Home Theft Involves Employees That Cared For Patients

A number of nursing home employees have been caught and found guilty of stealing jewelry and other priceless items from nursing home residents. The items were sold and the money kept for themselves. One of the employees pleaded guilty to stealing over $20,000 from the residents in the facility she worked at as a resident care assistant. The worker will be sentenced to 17 months in jail.

The employee’s daughter was found guilty of pawning a piece of jewelry that belonged to a resident for $2,000. Another individual at the nursing home was found guilty of breaking into one of the resident’s safes and stealing $100. She was later found guilty of stealing a total of $400.

Many of the residents living at this home had dementia and Alzheimer’s, making it easy for these employees to take advantage of their property. These employees were immediately fired from the nursing home and the facility has found new ownership. For more, read the story.
