ADMINISTRATOR TAKES PLEA IN NURSING HOME DEATH

RIVERHEAD – A former top administrator at a Medford nursing home admitted Friday to covering up the death of a woman at the facility.

In 2012, 72-year-old Aurelia Rios died after prosecutors say workers at Medford Multicare Center ignored several alarms, and failed to hook the woman up to a ventilator.

David Fielding admitted that he withheld the alarm log from two separate investigations into Rios’ death. He pleaded guilty to two felony counts of falsifying business records and one count of violating public health laws.

Charlie Stewart was looking forward to getting out of the nursing home in time for his 60th birthday. On his planned release day, in late 2012, the Long Island facility instead called Stewart’s wife to say he was being sent to the hospital with a fever.

“When I saw it at the hospital … I almost threw up,” Jeanne Stewart said. “It was disgusting. I said, ‘It looks like somebody took a match to it.’ ”
