Fayetteville nursing home sued over assault

Hard to believe as it may be, the long-term care industry does have its' bad actors. Although the accused employee entered a "guilty" plea, Fayetteville Health & Rehabilitation Center says the civil case should go to arbitration.

Sounds like a great idea to me. Let's negotiate the value of human dignity. What is the emotional well-being of an elderly crime victime worth? Brilliant.

Arkansas Business filed the report.

A Washington County woman is suing a Fayetteville nursing home because she said her dad was attacked by an employee while he was a resident there.

Debbie Rutherford has named Northport Health Services of Arkansas LLC, which you might know as Fayetteville Health & Rehabilitation Center, as a defendant.

Rutherford said in her lawsuit that while her father, Isaac Mitchell Rutherford, was a resident at the center in June 2006, he was attacked by employee Dion Ioanis Kalio.
