A.G. Schneiderman Announces Indictment Of Nine Suffolk County Nursing Home Employees In Connection With Resident Death

NEW YORK - Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman today announced the indictment of nine employees of the Medford Multicare Center for Living, Inc. in Medford, New York, including the facility's top administrator. Seven of those indicted were arrested and charged earlier this year in connection with the death of a 72-year-old resident who was at the nursing home for what was supposed to be temporary rehabilitation. Two employees, Marianne Fassino and Leona Gordon, were arrested today. All nine defendants were arraigned on the newly filed indictment before Suffolk County Supreme Court Justice John B. Collins. In addition, the corporation operating the home was indicted on charges of attempting to cover up the circumstances surrounding the 2012 death.
