Workers charged in Boardman nursing home death
Prosecutors in Boardman say three nursing home workers made a mistake with drugs and a patient died because of it. The death at the center of the case happened in 2015 at Greenbriar
Healthcare Center in Boardman. It took the Ohio Attorney General’s Office the next two years to put together its case, and now investigators are charging those that they say are responsible.
Assistant Mahoning County Prosecutor Michael McBride said the Greenbriar patient died after the employees gave him the wrong drug and then tried to treat his overdose
on their own. “We believe, and actually the coroner’s report indicates, it actually caused the death of this gentleman,” McBride said.
Johonna Hull, 28, of East Liverpool, was arrested and charged with abuse of a patient and tampering with medical records.
Brenda Lamancusa is also charged with patient abuse. Another person, who hasn’t yet been arrested, also faces charges.
