When we make the difficult decision to place our loved one in a skilled nursing facility, we want to ensure that they will be looked after and cared for by professional health care workers. Unfortunately, that’s not always the case. Take for example a story from Scranton on TheTimes-Tribune.com.
A nursing home employee at Angel’s Family Manor in Scranton was just arrested for stealing pain pills from the home and stealing money from another employee. According to the article, the employee was in charge of distributing medicine to the residents. She was found to have taken $2,000 from another employee. She was also found to have in her possession an envelope containing pills taken from Angel’s Family Manor. The employee is now in Lackawanna County Prison in lieu of $7,500 bail.
