The company that owns Hazard Nursing Home of

Kentucky
and the home’s top administrator have pleaded not guilty to charges of failure to report the sexual abuse of a resident.
Attorney General Jack Conway said charges were filed when the nursing home’s administrator failed to report the suspected sexual nursing home abuse of a female patient to the Cabinet for Health and Family Services, which is required by law. Conway said the administrator was alerted to the suspected abuse by another patient.

The “failure to report” charge is a Class B misdemeanor which carries up to $250 in fines and 90 days in jail.

The woman allegedly abused is an 88 year-old patient with Ahlzheimer’s disease.

At the time of this report, the attorney representing the nursing home administrator and Forcht Group of

Kentucky
, which owns Hazard, could not be reached for comment. Forcht Group of
Kentucky
was also not available for comment.
Another hearing in the case is scheduled for Dec. 14.
