Sexual Assault in a Wake Forest Assisted Living Center

The Wake Forest Care Center has been rocked by another blow to its reputation.  According to an article on the website for WRAL, a nursing assistant was arrested and charged with sexual assault on a resident who was “physically helpless.”

The accused man, 42-year-old Michael Lee Brodie, was charged with sexual assault, and is being held at Wake County jail on $75,000.00 bond. The victim is getting help from a group of experts, including a physician, a psychiatrist, and a therapist.

This is not the first challenge for this facility. Ever since North Carolina began a star rating program of adult care programs in 2009, Wake Forest Care Center has ranged between 0 stars and 1 star (out of a potential 4 stars). Although the facility is currently rated with 1 star, it received demerit points for “noncompliance with the rules related to resident care and services.”
