Iowa board fines nursing home administrator

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — An Iowa nursing home administrator has been fined $500 in connection with a sexual assault case involving two residents.

The Des Moines Register says (http://dmreg.co/1afxGes) the Board of Nursing Home Administrators said Susan Juilfs was guilty of professional incompetence. The board says Juilfs didn’t protect residents at her Pomeroy Care Center from a convicted sex offender who’d been placed there.

Court records indicate William Cubbage confessed to assaulting a 95-year-old woman at the nursing home in Calhoun County in August 2011. Prosecutors are not pursuing criminal charges but are trying to have the 85-year-old Cubbage recommitted to the Iowa Civil Commitment Unit for Sex Offenders.
