Iowa Nursing Home Administrator Faces Sanctions
Posted by PKSD Law Firm on Jun 21, 2013 in Nursing Homes and Elder Rights
Susan Julifs, former administrator at the Pomeroy Care Center in Pomeroy, Iowa, faces a charge of professional incompetence from the Iowa Board of Nursing Home Administrators.
The board says that Julifs should have known resident William Cubbage posed a threat to other residents and that she failed to protect those residents from the threat.
Before being a resident at Pomreoy, Cubbage was in the Iowa Civil Commitment Unit for Sex Offenders from 2002-2010. Cubbage was convicted of four separate cases alleging lascivious acts with a child, indecent contact with a child, and assault with intent to commit sexual abuse.
An 8-year-old who was visiting the home witnessed Cubbage fondling an elderly woman in her bed. According to the 8-year-old, the victim was repeatedly yelling, No!
Cubbage admitted to assaulting the woman and was recommitted to the sex-offender unit.
Julifs is currently the administrator at Lakeside Lutheran Home in Emmetsburg, IA.
The board is scheduled to review the matter on October 24th.
