As a nursing home lawyer for over 20 plus years, I have seen some stupid or evil things but this situation is both stupid and evil. Falo Kane is a certified nursing assistant at a nursing home in Florida who has been accused multiple times of inappropriately touching female residents. 10Investigates began looking into his background. The first thing was to pull up his license on the Florida Department of Health website. It showed no discipline and no complaints despite numerous prior allegations. In fact, he had been arrested for having a sexual encounter with someone in his care previously.
A police report from an arrest in 2018 said in the narrative: “due to the sexual nature of the crime, his previous arrest history, a pattern of current sexual behavior and his reluctance to admit to the crime he is not eligible for APAD.”
In September, news broke that CNA Falo Kane was arrested for sexually assaulting numerous patients in his care. One of those patients was Ashley’s mom, Deborah. The other patients came from other facilities around Pinellas County. His record showed no signs of wrongdoing because, although he was under investigation for multiple allegations: An arrest or waiting for trial is not evidence of wrongdoing and our statues recognize this by providing that only a conviction or plea is actionable.
Kane’s license was finally revoked by the board in December 2019 — but not because of his most recent arrest. This is from the plea for the arrest that happened a year and a half before.
In an interview with police, Kane told Clearwater detectives what he did was wrong.
“At the end of the day, I’m a health care worker. At the end of the day, that shouldn’t have occurred,” says Kane while speaking with police.
Kane described in intimate detail what occurred between him and some of the female patients at the facilities where he is being accused.
During the interview, police asked Kane if he would say he was guilty.
“I would say I am guilty for everything I did.“
Kane also wrote an apology letter to the woman he allegedly abused.
“If I could write a letter to every last one of them, if I could admit my wrongs and let them see it and read it, whatever the case maybe.”
