“I absolutely think their actions put the residents in jeopardy,” said Yolana Terrell.
Terrell is a nurse who worked at Poplar Point Health and Rehabilitation and she’s talking about the nursing home and its residents. She’s since been fired after reporting a serious problem at the facility.
Terrell reported another nurse who didn’t have her nursing license and falsified documents. The unlicensed nurse scared patients too, according to Terrell.
