Nursing home completes internal investigation after employee arrest

Posted: Updated:

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCIV) - Officials at Mt. Pleasant Manor Nursing Facility said the facility has undergone an internal evaluation and continues to work with law enforcement regarding the arrest of one of its employees last year.

Deasmond Kimbrough was arrested in December after allegations of abuse surfaced. Officials said he is not longer employed at the facility.

Mt. Pleasant Manor's investigation revealed that there were no other incidents involving Kimbrough, officials said. The patient who was allegedly victimized in December was placed in a new facility with Mt. Pleasant Manor's assistance, officials added.

Administrators at the facility said security cameras were being added to common areas and officials would be making random room checks and hosting quarterly seminars for families as well as private interviews of residents in a way to prevent similar incidents in the future.
