Three indicted for abusing nursing home residents

Three employees of a Kentucky nursing home were indicted on a whopping 69 charges including criminal abuse, endangerment and neglect of an elderly person.

Jerry Matthew Snyder, Kayla D. Kinser and Kelly D. Duvall were charged for infractions that occurred at the Genesis Healthcare Edmonson Center Nursing Home in Brownsville, Kentucky, according to WBKO News. Snyder was charged with 14 counts of first-degree abuse and 14 counts of fourth-degree assault and 14 counts of knowingly neglecting an adult, according to WBKO News.

Kinser was charged with four counts of abuse and four of neglect, amongst others.

Duvall was charged with four counts of criminal abuse and four accounts of assault and neglect, both.

The charges against the three employees were brought on after the Kentucky State Police Post 3 Bowling Green conducted an investigation into the procedures followed at the Edmonson Center.

The Edmonson Center is located north of Bowling Green, Kentucky and south of Louisville Kentucky.  Bigger does not ensure that it’s better. The Park City Daily News reports that the Edmonson Center is one of more than 400 skilled nursing centers and assisted/senior living communities operated by Genesis HealthCare, a Pennsylvania-based company employs nearly 80,000 people and has nursing centers and senior and assisted-living facilities in 28 states, while the Genesis Rehab Services division provides rehabilitation therapy to nearly 1,500 health care providers across the United States.
