A.G. Schneiderman Announces Arrest Of Aide Accused Of Endangering Suffolk Nursing Home Resident
HAUPPAUGE - Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman today announced the arrest of Claudia Desulme, a certified nurse aide, on charges she endangered the welfare of a 92-year-old, wheelchair-bound resident of Huntington Hills Center for Health and Rehabilitation in Melville, N.Y. Court documents filed in the case allege Desulme illegally moved the resident from her wheelchair to her bed without the assistance of another staff person, as required by the resident's care plan and that, as a result, the resident sustained a laceration to her right leg. In an attempt to cover up the illegal transfer, Desulme, and another uncharged aide, allegedly bandaged the wound and failed to report the injury. Desulme, who no longer works at the facility, faces multiple felony and misdemeanor charges and up to four years in prison.
