The Moultrie Observer reported a story about another nursing home employee who sexually assaulted a resident. How can this happen if a criminal background check was done and RNs are properly supervising the staff?
Charles David Cone, 47, of 321 12th Ave. N.W. in Cairo, was charged with sodomy and sexual battery. An employee at the Woodlands at Cobblestone on Cobblestone Trace reported Feb. 27 that Cone allegedly touched a 92-year-old male patient inappropriately. The patient stated there were two separate incidents, one on Feb. 25 and the other the next day.
According to a warrant for Cone’s arrest, he is accused of putting the patient’s penis in his mouth on Feb. 26. Cone allegedly fondled the patient’s genitals on Feb, 25,
Executive Director Joann Sloan said Cone was terminated from his job at Woodlands immediately after the alleged incident was reported. “Our standard of practice and our goal is to provide a safe environment for our patients,” Sloan said.
