Nursing Home Worker Charged With Financial Exploitation

Meredith A. Sharp, 37, a former employee of the Hitz Memorial Home in Alhambra, was charged Tuesday with financial exploitation of an elderly person in a case that officials said cost a resident more than $16,000. Sharp had been jailed in lieu of $75,000 bond.

She resigned from the nursing home in December. Staff contacted authorities on Dec. 17, after the resident received a credit card bill with unexplained purchases that included furniture and a TV.
