Three employees in a Price Hill, Cincinnati nursing home have been charged with neglect after it was discovered that they routinely left patients alone for hours. Lanetra Smith, 22, Lamonica Duckworth, 26, and Barbara Briggs, 35, were arrested after a nursing home patient called the police to inform them he had been left by himself. All three were arrested on Tuesday (19DEC06) - Smith was charged with patient abuse and obstructing official business, Duckworth was charged with gross patient neglect, while Briggs was charged with patient abuse. Nursing home officials say, "We assure you that the health and safety of our residents is our primary concern."
