WXXI News reported another sexual assault at a nursing home. As a nursing home attorney for over 25 years, I have never seen so many stories about sexual assaults and rape at nursing homes nationwide. The nursing home industry would rather pay rapists than provide a living wage and benefits to qualified caregivers. Quality of staff matters as much as quantity.
Khadka Pradhan worked at Shore Winds Nursing Home in Charlotte when he allegedly violated an 81-year-old woman with dementia on Sept. 29. Pradhan faces five felony charges.
The indictment charges Pradhan with first-degree rape, first-degree criminal sexual act and three other crimes.
