Head nurse in Washington suspended following numerous sex abuse cases

Posted on Thursday, September 22nd, 2016    

A 12-month license suspension was imposed on a former nursing home director who is under investigation for multiple sexually abusive acts that occurred between residents with dementia on her watch, a report of komonews.com stated on September 20.

Reports said Marilee Mellon was suspended from her position at the Cashmere Convalescent Center over allegations that dementia patients were sexually abused inside the facility. The nursing home was investigated last year due to numerous complaints coming from families that sexual abuses between dementia patients were not reported. The suspension penalty occurred after an investigation found Mellon was negligent about reporting such incidents
