Substantiated Exploitation Allegation Against Staff Member at Friendship Village Bloomington
Based on a preponderance of the evidence, financial exploitation is substantiated. The AP took the resident’s credit card and used it to make purchases.
The resident was admitted to the transitional care unit (TCU) following a hospital stay for an acute condition. The facility received a call from a family member saying that resident’s credit card had been used without authorization to make purchases at two local stores. The facility contacted the police who obtained video evidence from retailers; the AP was identified as the person making the transactions on the credit card.
