Kristen Davis wrote a story in the Virginian-Pilot about a nursing home employee pleading guilty to sexually assaulting a comatose resident.
Mark S. Albright faces up to 20 years in prison, Albright, a licensed practical nurse, was working at Chesapeake Health and Rehabilitation Center when a female employee entered the room of a 43-year-old comatose patient the night of July 3. She saw Albright “with his mouth on” the woman’s breast, according to a police affidavit filed in court.
This is a sick and tragic story but at least the witness came forward and reported it. Many times this kind of assault is covered up by the nursing home.
