Kentucky Staff Found Using Improper Cellphone
The Kentucky state officials have alleged that the staff of a nursing home had been found with improper use of mobile phone. This is the second such incident in the state. The allegation has mainly come from Beth Fisher.
According to Fisher, who is the spokeswoman associated with the Cabinet for Health and Family Services, told that the incident occurred in the nursing home Dawson Pointe that is located in Dawson Springs. The facility is also called Dawson Springs Health and Rehabilitation.
The reference of Dawson Pointe is followed by a prior investigation involving a nursing home named Bluegrass Care and Rehabilitation that is located in Lexington.
According to reports, the investigators had found that the staff of the Bluegrass Care and Rehabilitation had attached lyrics to photographs of the residents of the caring center and forwarded them to other employees of the facility as text messages. The lyrics were found to be sexually explicit.
Soon after the citation against Dawson Pointe came into light, the authorities sprang into action. Margaret Curtis, the administrator at Dawson Pointe, informed that the officials were offering full cooperation to the law enforcing investigation.
Curtis further told that authorities and administration at the nursing facility were completely dismayed at the revelation of the malpractice. She added that the administration of the facility has started taking prompt action to ensure the protection of the residents.
However, Curtis seemed not interested in offering the details of the incident that occurred at the nursing home. She reasoned that she was not at the post of administrator at the time the violation took place in the facility.
On the other hand, Fisher also admitted that additional information in this respect was not available immediately.
In view of the two subsequent incidents of the same nature, the Cabinet officials are demanding for the prevention of such cell phone uses in all the long term care facilities in Kentucky in future.
