Nursing Home Abuse in Centre
Three former employees at a Centre nursing home are convicted of elder abuse. Sandra Curry, Kacey Allen and Shawna Rogers pled guilty to attempted elder abuse in Cherokee County Circuit Court.
An investigation found that a bedridden 84-year-old resident suffered about 100 ant bites during their shift on September 3, 2016. Authorities say the three women claimed to have checked on the resident during the shift. However, a review of the surveillance video showed that none of the three entered the room for 11 hours.
All three are barred from working in a healthcare facility and have been placed on probation
