Ohio Hillsdale, OH - Two former nursing home executives who have been charged with patient abuse face preliminary hearings next week in Hillsdale Circuit Court. The Michigan Attorney General's Office filed two counts of nursing home patient abuse against Laura Tackett, the former director of nursing at Litchfield Nursing Centre in Litchfield. In addition, the state charged Ms. Tackett, of Homer, and Mary Tamlyn, Litchfield's former administrator, with two counts each of failing to report patient abuse to state authorities. The two were arraigned last week in Hillsdale District Court and are free on personal recognizance bonds pending a pretrial hearing Sept. 27.
