 3/20/17 - BRIEF: Lantana senior home administrator stole from elderly man, report says [The Palm Beach Post, Fla.]

March 20Craig Allen Fischer, of Lake Worth, is facing a charge of exploitation of the elderly between $10,000 and $50,000 and was released from the Palm Beach County Jail Thursday after posting a $5,000 bond.

Fischer runs the Anguilla Cay Senior Living Center at 1021 Ridge Road.

An investigation by the Medicaid Fraud Control Unit with the state's attorney general's office showed that Fischer continued billing the man's account for more than a year after the patient was moved to another facility because of his medical condition.

Fischer is accused of electronically withdrawing $35,210 from the man's account from June 2015 through July 2016. A former administrative assistant at the nursing home told investigators that Anguilla Cay received notification in May 2015 that the patient would not be returning to the facility because his medical problems required more specialized care.

The patient suffers from dementia, Parkinson's disease and other infirmities and Fischer "should have known" the man's condition "would inhibit him from making sound decisions in matters regarding his finances...," the report said.
