Nursing Home Failed to Call Police After Sex Offender Abused Resident

A CNY nursing home didn’t call cops after sex offender abused resident 3 separate times. Oswego, N.Y. nursing home did not call police after a registered sex offender living in the facility repeatedly sexually abused a female resident suffering from dementia, according to the state.

Pontiac Nursing Home in Oswego failed to consistently monitor the sex offender or take other steps to protect the woman and other residents from the man, a state Health Department inspection shows.

The nursing home management didn’t tell Pontiac’s doctor and some other employees who cared for the man that he is a sex offender, the inspection report says.

Pontiac admitted the man in 2019, even though management knew he was a registered sex offender for an offense committed in another state, according to the inspection.
