A.G. Schneiderman Announces Sentencing Of Former Head Nurse For Covering Up Neglect Of Nursing Home Resident

NEW YORK-Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman announced the sentencing of registered nurse Riadel Manzano, 45, of East Williston, after a Nassau County jury found her guilty of Offering a False Instrument for Filing in the First Degree, a felony, for providing a NYS Department Of Health ("DOH") investigator with a record that she knew falsely reflected that nursing staff at Woodmere Rehabilitation and Health Care Center ("Woodmere") had properly monitored a Woodmere resident who had been seriously injured after repeated falls. While he was not being monitored, the resident fell at Woodmere and struck his head, resulting in a laceration which required him to be hospitalized and receive staples to his scalp. After being returned to Woodmere, the following day the resident was found sitting on the floor and was again hospitalized with respiratory failure and pulmonary edema.
