Kentucky Nursing Home in Trouble

Attorney General Jack Conway announced, Hazard Nursing Home Incorporated and its owner, Sheila Noe, 61, are charged with failure to report suspected abuse.

The state alleges, Noe was told about a case of sexual abuse last year but did not report it to authorities.

Noe has been summoned to appear in Perry District Court September 13th.

The news comes on the same day the Bluegrass Care and Rehabilitation Center in Lexington was placed on the federal government's list of nationally troubled facilities.

The government found 22 deficiencies at the home in fiscal year 2010 more than three times the national average.

Two homes in Kentucky, Arbor Place of Clinton in Hickman County, and James S. Taylor Memorial Home in Louisville, have been on that list for at least six months.

Both are categorized as showing no signs of improvement.
