Nursing Home Employee Charged with Financial Abuse

A nursing home employee was stealing from nursing home residents. The 44-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of fraudulent use of credit cards, petit theft, financial exploitation of the elderly, bank fraud, grand theft and fraudulent use of personal identification information. At first nursing home residents reported missing checks at the retirement community. However, later there were many more items missing from the home. One elderly victim reported that the employee stole a $5,000 14-karat charm bracelet and a $2,5000 ring from her. Another elderly victim had an expensive necklace and gold chain taken. The woman then is accused of taking the items to a pawn shop. Financial exploitation of the elderly has become a common form of elderly abuse.
