  1. Sweetjane were you there? Please stop judging others, there is 2 sides of the story. People need to grow up. Ruining peoples reputation and talking bad about others without hearing The whole story about what happened seems to be one sided from the victim. The visitor I feel sorry for, as we don’t know her side of the story. Grow up people, don’t make assumptions and judge.

    • You don’t know what happened, people can say what you want, the truth will come out when the family is ready to make a statement. This article is misrepresented in a huge way. Don’t make judgements until you hear 2 sides of the story.

  2. Not really enough detail, there is always two sides to every story, people visiting nursing homes should record their visits, or go with at least two people. I would like to hear the facts from the female visitor.

    • I certainly am not jumping to any conclusions.

      There is criminal activity going on in various facilities so kept undercover by choice.

      This is neither the time nor the place for me to get into detail in public in case that became clearly to me the right choice.

      There is so much organized crime and or premeditated or not and besides it is impossible to rectify it within a legal sense.

      Definitely in my mind.

      I have no doubt in my mind that my communication is for no wrong motive or purpose.

      • Clarification _ It is not that I condone any of it or am in collusion in the least nor enabling any of it.

        I am sure of that in me.

    • Jim Sweezey there is no 2 sides to the story. one does not have a right to place their hands on another. Especially a caregiver whom is at work, also I don’t think she would do anything in front of witnesses to jeopardize her employment.

    • Allegations were made, the courts will decide, and yes there are two sides, the accuser, and the defendant. I`m not taking sides on this, but no proof has been provided, all we have is an allegation. I have a great deal of respect for people that work in nursing homes, and I know it`s a hard and thankless job much of the time. Lets let the courts decide, and not prejudge.
