Detroit News reported that two nursing home caregivers pled guilty to intentionally placing false information on a chart involving medical records. Denise Filcek and Yahira Zamora were charged in the death of an 85-year-old woman who was found in cold weather outside an assisted living center. A resident with dementia, Kathryn Brackett, wandered outside and was found dead on Oct. 27, 2016.
Filcek was responsible for making bed checks. She told the judge, however, she didn’t check on everyone. Sentencing is Nov. 28.
Zamora pleaded no contest to second-degree vulnerable adult abuse. Authorities say she reset a door alarm without determining whether anyone was outside Crystal Springs Assisted Living Center. She’s also awaiting sentencing.
