Rape Of Cerebal Palsy Patient Reported In St. Louis Nursing Home

Rape Of Cerebal Palsy PatientA janitor at the Normandy Nursing Center, a St. Louis, Missouri nursing home, was arrested and charged with raping a resident at the facility.  The victim is a 36-year-old woman suffering from Cerebal Palsy and seizure disorder.  The alleged incident took place on December 21st when the janitor attacked the woman in a stairwell and raped her.  The alleged perpetrator is being held in the St. Louis County Jail on $200,000 cash only bond.  According to the administrator at Normandy Nursing Center, the alleged perpetrator has worked at the facility for a year and a half and passed a background check.

Normandy Nursing Center received 2 out of 5 starts as a total rating for the facility according to Medicare’s Nursing Home Compare website.  The for-profit facility is capable for 116 residents.  When it comes to staffing levels at the facility, Normandy rated poorly receiving just 1 out of 5 stars.  Normandy’s staffing levels were significantly below the staffing levels for both national and Missouri nursing home averages.  Dare I say that had Normandy provided more staff to look after residents, this nursing home rape may have been prevented?
