NORTH CAROLINA NURSING HOME ADMINISTRATOR ATTEMPTS COVER UP

I wrote yesterday about the tragic and unnecessary death of Annie Scarboro, a 87-year-old Alzheimer’s patient living at the Five Oaks Manor nursing home in Concord, North Carolina.

Well guess what? Five Oaks Manor, and it administrator, are back in the news. Apparently, the administrator failed to notify state investigators of Scarboro’s death as required and the investigation of the facility and the circumstances surrounding the event was conducted as a result of an anonymous complaint.

My Take: I hope the state of North Carolina throws the book at the administrator and the owners of Five Oaks Manor.
