A.G. Schneiderman Announces Nurse Arrest For Failing To Give Critical Medications To Nursing Home Residents

PUTNAM COUNTY - Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman today announced the arrest of Stacy E. McAdams, 47, a licensed practical nurse formerly employed by Putnam Ridge Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in the Town of Brewster for allegedly failing to administer prescribed medications to three residents. It is alleged that McAdams failed to administer anti-seizure medication to a resident with a history of seizures, anticoagulant medication to a resident at risk for blood clots, and blood pressure and heart medication to a resident with congestive heart failure and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. McAdams made entries into each of the residents' medical records, falsely indicating that she administered the medication.
