Fine for Failure to Protect

Tulsa World reported that an Oklahoma nursing home was fined $1.3 million for what the Oklahoma State Department of Health said is failure to stop a registered sex offender at the home from inappropriately touching other patients. The Enid News & Eagle reports that DHS notified Kenwood Manor of the fine and other sanctions on April 1.

"A health department official said numerous deficiencies were found at the home during a March 8 inspection that was triggered by an anonymous complaint. The department said the sex offender has inappropriately touched other patents and that the nursing home failed to implement its policy to prevent abuse."
