A South Carolina caregiver faces elder abuse charges after a December 31, 2010 incident
Forty-one-year-old Sonia King was making morning rounds at Carolina House on New Year’s Eve when she reportedly slapped two elderly residents and threatened to choke a third resident. The residents were provided medical treatment.
King, who faces three counts of abuse of a vulnerable adult, was terminated from the facility.
Sadly, events like this are all too common in nursing homes. Nursing home owners are determining multiple ways to pocket the money they receive instead of providing quality care and quality employees. The result? Less care, more negligence, and more abuse.
