Madisonville Nurse Indicted On Abuse, Neglect Charges

A Madisonville nurse has been indicted on abuse and neglect charges after an alleged physical incident involving a resident at a nursing home last year.

Attorney General Andy Beshear and his Office of Medicaid Fraud and Abuse reported Friday 34-year old Ashley Maypray of Madisonville was indicted by a Hopkins County grand jury in February and was formally arraigned in Hopkins Circuit Court Thursday, March 14, on one count of knowingly abusing or neglecting an adult, a Class C felony.

On March 7, 2018, a release says Maypray, who worked as a licensed practical nurse at a nursing home, allegedly slapped the victim and pinched then twisted the skin on the victim’s arm when she was performing medical services.

If convicted, Beshear’s office indicates Maypray faces a potential of up to ten years in prison and could also face profession sanctions.
