Attorney General: Nurse At Endwell Facility Arrested

State investigators have accused a nurse at a Broome County nursing home of endangering a resident.

According to the New York State Attorney General’s office, 34-year-old Tanya Johnson of Greene has been charged with endangering the welfare of an incompetent or physically disabled person.

Johnson also was charged with falsifying business records and willful violation of health laws.

Investigators say Johnson, a licensed practical nurse, worked at the Good Shepherd Village at Endwell nursing facility.

Officials say the charges stem from an October incident when a resident fell while being bathed by Johnson. The resident is said to have sustained abrasions as a result of the fall.

Johnson allegedly failed to have the resident assessed by a registered nurse before he was moved. Johnson has been accused of lying about the incident in a handwritten statement.

The attorney general’s office indicated Johnson started working at the facility in July.
