CNA Arrested After Soliciting Sexual Favors From Resident

Apparently, a history of criminal financial behavior wasn’t enough to discourage the owners of Waterbook Assisted Living from hiring Katonia Davis as a CNA at their facility— because she wasn’t going to be handling any of the finances at the facility.

Soliciting Sexual Favors From ResidentYet, just four months into her tenure at the North Carolina assisted living facility, Ms. Davis apparently couldn’t control the strong feeling she had for a resident at the facility that she was to care for.  Another employee at the facility witnessed Ms. Davis pay the resident $20 for him to perform sexual acts with her.

While Davis was apparently quickly removed from her position by facility administrators and will face criminal charges, this type of incident again demonstrates that need for facilities to screen all job applicants and use common sense before placing an employee with a suspect background into an environment where they will have access to particularly vulnerable patients.

Client Reviews

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
