Sarasota Herald Tribune had an article recently about a Bradenton caregiver arrested for leaving her post as the only caretaker at a Bradenton nursing home where a resident later suffered heat stroke and seizures while she was gone.
Linda Shaw, 48, was employed by Personal Care II, an assisted living facility located at 120 8th Ave. E. in Bradenton. Shaw was responsible for providing care and supervision to the victim and 15 others at the facility. Authorities say Shaw left the residents unsupervised during an overnight shift in July.
During that time, a 47-year-old resident fell ill, and his roommate had to call 911 for help. The patient was taken to the hospital in critical condition.
