Nursing home workers charged
Nine workers at the Northwoods Rehabilitation and Extended Care Facility have been named in a 175-count indictment charging them with not properly caring for an incapacitated patient and falsifying records to make it appear they did.
Authorities allege the resident was often left in the same position throughout an entire shift.
Nursing staff members are accused of failing to administer medications, as well not treating the resident's bedsores and failing to check the resident for incontinence or change undergarments for long periods of time.
The following people were named in the 173-page state attorney general's indictment handed up in Rensselaer County Court:
Physician assistant Julia Roske, 43, of Guilderland; certified nursing assistants Jessica Tremper, 29, of Troy, and Sharon John, 54, of New York; and licensed practical nurses Gail Klein, 61, of Mechanicville, Linda Vogt, 61, of Schaghticoke, Leslie Mayo, 53, of Watervliet, Alicia Smith, 36, of Schenectady; and Lisa Sousie, 44, and Kathleen Osgood, 38.
