Virginia Norfolk, VA - The case of a nursing home aide accused of committing a string of violations in four Virginia Beach facilities is scheduled to be reviewed Wednesday by the Virginia Board of Nursing. The allegations against Patricia Annette Dukes Moore include abuse of residents and span more than five years in Virginia. But the incidents were only recently investigated by the board. "Unless someone reports an incident, you can't take action," said Jodi Power, deputy executive director for the Virginia Board of Nursing and manager of the nurse aide registry. "You can't act on something you don't know about."
