Board Fines Nursing Home Administrator
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - An Iowa nursing home administrator has been fined $500 in connection with a sexual assault case involving two residents.
The Des Moines Register says the Board of Nursing Home Administrators said Susan Juilfs was guilty of professional incompetence. The board says Juilfs didn't protect residents at her Pomeroy Care Center from a convicted sex offender who'd been placed there.
Court records indicate William Cubbage confessed to assaulting a 95-year-old woman at the nursing home in Calhoun County in August 2011. Prosecutors are not pursuing criminal charges but are trying to have the 85-year-old Cubbage recommitted to the Iowa Civil Commitment Unit for Sex Offenders.
