Attorney General Conway Announces Indictment of Kentucky Nurse for Neglect
Attorney General Jack Conway today announced that a Jefferson County Grand Jury has returned a felony indictment against a Kentucky nurse for allegedly knowingly neglecting an adult.
Stacy Harrison, a 48-year-old Licensed Practical Nurse from Jeffersonville, Ind. was indicted on Wednesday, July 2. According to the indictment, Harrison, while employed with Hurstbourne Care on March 8 and March 9, failed to respond to multiple requests to check on an elderly resident who was in the facility for rehabilitative therapy. The indictment further alleges that Harrison did not attempt to revive the resident after the patient appeared to have stopped breathing. The resident eventually died. Harrison faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted.
A criminal summons has been issued for Stacy Harrison, who is licensed as a nurse in both Kentucky and Indiana.
The indictment was sought by Attorney General Conway’s Office of Medicaid Fraud and Abuse Control. Citizens are urged to report suspected fraud or elder abuse by calling the Attorney General’s tip line at 1-877-ABUSE TIP (1-877-228-7384).
