Unsanitary Conditions and Care Concerns Force Authorities to Shut Down Three Nursing Homes

Dozens of nursing home residents in three different long-term care facilities had to be relocated after alleged abuse was discovered. Investigators from the Police Department’s Family Investigations Unit and the Attorney General’s Office arrested a 42-year-old registered nurse and owner of three long term care facilities on a long list of charges of abuse of vulnerable adults.

Three long term care facilities were shut down in light of the allegations. There are 69 adult victims ranging in age from 35 to 89. Police allege that the facilities were infested with bed bugs, cockroaches and there were patients with open wounds.

Police and fire officials were frequently dispatched to at least one of the locations and expressed concerns about unsafe living conditions, an unhealthy environment, and untreated medical conditions. All of the residents have been relocated to other licensed care facilities. For more, read the story.
