The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation investigated allegations of patient abuse against a 24-year-old former caregiver of a dependent adult which has resulted in an indictment and subsequent arrest.
Corey London, 24, was indicted by the Davidson County grand jury on one count of abuse of neglect of an impaired adult, a felony, on June 1, 2012.
In February, an agent with TBI’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit began investigating an abuse referral from Adult Protective Services regarding an incident that occurred on January 24, 2012 while London was employed as a paid care giver for individuals with physical or mental challenges. London, who worked for Restoration Residential Services in Madison, Tenn. was caring for a 26-year-old dependent adult when he put the victim’s foot into bath water so hot it resulted in a second degree burn. London then put the patient to bed and did not seek medical attention. The injury was discovered by staff the next day and London was suspended from his position.
London was arrested by Metro Nashville Police on June 12, 2012 and released on a $7,500 bond.
