According to the Lexington Herald-Leader, another Britthaven nursing home facility is in trouble, this time for the death of a resident by abuse and neglect.
A former nursing assistant at Britthaven Nursing Home in Pineville, Kentucky, left a partially paralyzed man unattended and without support. The man fell and later died of complications from the injury. The nursing assistant has been jailed and is being held on $500,000 cash bond.
The comment from Britthaven officials? The same thing we’ve heard from them before: Nothing.
What does that tell us about how much Britthaven officials care? Everything.
