KY Nursing Home Administrator Admits to Stealing From Patients

A former administrator at a Kentucky nursing home has pleaded guilty to multiple charges including: theft, exploitation of a vulnerable adult and tax fraud.

The nursing home administrator identified as James Tackett, confessed to stealing more than $300,000 from patients he was responsible for caring for at the Golden Years Rest Home (ironically a non-profit facility).

Authorities were tipped off to Mr. Tackett’s activities after several patients at the facility complained about not receiving economic stimulus checks from the federal government. The complaint was then passed on to the Social Security Administration and Department of Revenue who quickly learned that Mr. Teckett took it upon himself to take his patient’s funds.

This is not an isolated criminal venture for Mr. Tackett. In 2009, he pleaded guilty to physically abusing a patient at Golden Years Rest Home.

    What is wrong with the states that they can't stop this stealing by employees?
