Abandoned Nursing Home Owner Charged With Elder Abuse

By Jonathan Roven on March 31, 2015 - Comments off

Recently, the owner and administrator of a nursing home in Castro Valley California have been charged with elder abuse, which could sentence them to prison. They were accused of leaving the nursing home on October 24, 2013, when the state had ordered that it be closed.

Paramedics made a call to the home about 48 hours later and found that there was a notice on its door by social services. However, there were needy residents whom were still bedridden, being attended to by some volunteers. These volunteers, including a janitor and a cook, stayed because they felt bad for the patients.

Herminigilda Manuel, the owner, was arrested at San Francisco International Airport. If convicted for elder abuse, Manuel could face up to 17 years in prison and fines up to $6,000 for each count.
