Beverly Rasberry Stone, the operator of Stonecrest Senior Care in Sweetwater, Texas, was indicted on May 11, 2010 on two counts of injury to an elderly person after a resident under her care developed severe bedsores
The abuse allegations arose after Stone’s facility “failed to seek appropriate attention, and (the bedsores) became untreatable”. The resident eventually died of unrelated causes and the death is not at issue in the injury charges lodged against the nursing home operator.
According to Stone’s attorney, her facility was not permitted to handle more than three residents at one time and that rule was violated for a period of time.
After her recent arrest, Stone was released after posting bonds in the amount of $30,000. Her arraignment hearing has been waived.
