Two former Nurse’s aides, Amanda Sallee and Valerie Lamb, were indicted Thursday by a Madison County grand jury for abuse or neglect of an adult in connection with the videotaped abuse of a former resident. The incident occurred at Madison Manor in Richmond, KY, which is a part of Richmond Health and Rehabilitation Center. Sallee’s indictment accuses her of not offering meals to or offering to help feed the resident, 84-year-old Armeda Thomas of Irvine, but instead eating the food herself. The indictment also accuses her of putting Thomas at risk for infection by improperly cleaning her. The Medicaid Fraud and Abuse Control Division began investigating the nursing home after Thomas’ family installed a video camera in her room because they were suspicious of possible abuse.
