Former Wayne County Nurse Pleads Guilty to Sexual Abuse

Attorney General Eric Schneiderman recently announced the guilty plea for sexual abuse perpetrated while the defendant was employed as a Certified Nursing Assistant during his tenure at the Wayne County Nursing Home, as reported by

Nursing home abuse lawyers believe living a long life is not worth it if this is what you have to look forward too.  
At a press conference it was revealed that the defendant, Louis Magrino, had on multiple occasions sexually abused the daughter of one of his patients. Magrino was in charge of two patients, an 84 year old and a 99 year old, and it was the 99 year old’s daughter that he had abused.

The allegations in the lawsuit state that Magrino had forcibly touched the breasts of the woman while exposing his genitals to the resident and making sexually charged verbal statements. Furthermore, Magrino pleaded guilty to putting the resident away in the bathroom and then proceeding to sexual abuse the daughter. Louis Magrino, what are you thinking?! Nursing home abuse lawyers cannot believe people like this exist.

Supposedly, another Certified Nursing Assistant apparently heard the sound of a bell coming from the room of the 99 year old resident and responded to it and shockingly discovered Magrino committing the lewd act.

Magrino has now been convicted of 11 counts of indictment for committing violent sexual abuse and multiple counts of willful violation of public health law and public lewdness, which is expected in such cases according to nursing home abuse lawyers.

Magrino’s sentencing has been scheduled for the 15th of September. If something like this or anything even close to this happens to someone you care about press right here Nursing-Home-Abuse.USAttorneys. You need legal help on your side and time is not in your favor.

Anniston Nursing Home in Legal Trouble for How they Responded to Claims Of Abuse from Resident

A nursing home in Anniston has been cited by state regulators for failing to stop sexual abuse even after the patient/victim raised the alarm bells, as reported by According to the citation, the nursing home allowed a caregiver to continue working with the same patient even after the patient had accused the care giver of sexual abuse.

This blatant disregard for the cries of the resident was uncovered by one of many inspections carried out by nearly 50 surveyors with the Alabama Department of Public Health, which inspects as many as 230 nursing home once every 15 months or so.

The accused employee has since been terminated from his position at the nursing home, but nursing home abuse attorneys say the action is something which is too little too late. This seems like a knee-jerk reaction by the nursing home after being penalized. What they should have done instead is investigate the patient’s claims and take appropriate measures right away to ensure no such events would transpire in the future.
