Fatal Choking Incident

The Michigan Attorney General issued a press release about Jessica Struhar. Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel arrested Jessica Struhar on one count each of 2nd degree Vulnerable Adult Abuse and Intentionally Placing False Information in a Medical Record.  Each count is a four-year felony.

The Attorney General alleges that during Struhar’s employment in 2021 as a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) at Medilodge of Richmond, a skilled nursing facility, she ignored orders for a 58-year-old resident’s plan of care during mealtime. The alleged neglect led to a fatal choking incident at the facility. Additionally, CNA Struhar is alleged to have made several false medical records entries about the victim’s care while he was receiving life-saving care from EMS and hospital personnel.

Struhar is next due in court for a Probable Cause Conference on October 17th.
