Queen City News reported a scary story. Three separate nursing facilities in upstate South Carolina hired an unqualified woman to care for vulnerable adults. Do they not care enough to check license and qualifications? How were all three tricked? The background check is simple and legally required. Campbell’s license was suspended in October 2020.
The South Carolina Law Enforcement Division arrested Kimberly Faye Campbell. SLED charged her with the following: three counts of identity fraud; three counts of neglect of a vulnerable adult; and three counts of unlicensed practice as a registered nurse.
One of the places was Easley Place in Anderson County between June 8, 2021, through August 6, 2021. She worked at Powdersville Post-Acute in Pickens County and Poinsett Rehabilitation in Greenville County from August 4, 2021, through January 31, 2022.
How many residents were neglected during that time period? Will the facilities suffer any penalty?
