Lawsuit highlights social media issues in LTC

A lawsuit has been filed after an employee of a South Dakota nursing home posted nude photos of a resident on social media.

The employee, Callie Jones, worked at Golden Living Center in Pierre, SD. Jones pleaded guilty and served three days in jail.

Now, the lawsuit, filed on behalf of the now-deceased resident’s estate, claims that Golden Living Center was negligent in hiring, training, and supervising Jones, as well as failed to attain and maintain the victim’s well-being, and failed to promote the victim’s quality of life.
