Orono senior home cited in death of woman who fell and wasn't found for 10 hours, later died

An Orono senior home has been cited for neglect after a resident fell and was left on the floor of her room for nearly 10 hours, and later died.


A state Health Department investigation found that several employees at the Trails of Orono, an assisted-living facility, failed to respond to an activated bed alarm, and also failed to make regular checks on the resident on the night of her fall in August of last year.


The woman's health deteriorated after the fall and she died 26 days later, according to a state investigation report released Thursday.
