Nursing Home Worker Steals $132,000 From Nursing Home And Residents By Writing Checks To Herself

Administrators did not want to comment on an employee who embezzled $132,000 from 21 residents in the home. She was writing checks to herself from their trust funds and using the nursing home’s funds to pay for her boyfriend’s cellphone bill. She was able to access the funds as the office manager of the home for almost three years.

Family members of residents were surprised and disappointed, noting that the trust accounts were set up for personal care, such as haircuts. Police also noted checks written saying they were going towards a patient’s funeral plan or medication, saying, “It pulls on everybody’s heart strings that the elderly have been abused”.
