Richmond nurse's aide is sentenced in nursing home abuse case

A former nurse's aide at Richmond Health and Rehabilitation Complex (Madison Manor) nursing home was sentenced Thursday for neglecting to feed a patient in 2008, Attorney General Jack Conway said.

Conway's office prosecuted Amanda Sallee, of Richmond, who pleaded guilty in March in Madison Circuit Court to charges of wanton abuse and neglect of nursing home resident.

Sallee was sentenced to one year in prison. The sentence will be diverted for a period of five years if she maintains good behavior and does not work with vulnerable adults or children; in the health care industry; or for a Medicaid or Medicare provider.

She must also perform 100 hours of community service and cooperate fully in further investigations involving Madison Manor Nursing Home.

Sallee is the third nurse's aide convicted of abusing resident Armeda Thomas.
