Just Charge It. Nursing Home Employee Uses Company Credit Card For Personal Gain

Credit Card Fraud in Nursing HomeA former employee at the Crown Healthcare Nursing Home in Mobile, Alabama recently plead guilty to first-degree theft.  The former nursing home worker used the nursing home’s credit card to buy $14,373 in personal purchases from Sam’s Wholesale Club.  From June, 2005 through May, 2007 the nursing home worker bought gas, tires, a washing machine and groceries for personal use as though the were purchased for the benefit of the nursing home. The employee was sentenced to two years, which was suspended, placed on probation for five years, ordered to pay full restitution and fined $500.  Learn more about the theft from an Alabama nursing home here.  I hope the residents of Crown Healthcare have double checked their bank accounts….

Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa

After I read Jonathan’s Nursing Home Blog, I decided to hire him to look into my wife’s treatment at a local nursing home. Jonathan did a great job explaining the process and the laws that apply to nursing homes. I immediately felt at ease and was glad to have him on my side. Though the lawsuit process was at times frustrating, Jonathan reassured me, particularly at my deposition. I really felt like Jonathan cared about my wife’s best interests, and I think that came across to the lawyers for the nursing home. Eric
