He pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor count of willful violation of health laws and was given a year of conditional discharge and community service.
In its plan of correction, the home said the photo was removed from Instagram and no other residents were affected. The director of nursing services said "it was brought to my attention by (staff) that on (another staff's social media website) posted something that said 'this is why I love my job' and then there were people's feet but no faces and (Resident #3) was singing.
I didn't do an investigation because there was no identifiable people and not sure if (Administrator) might have spoke to (her/him)." The home did not return multiple calls seeking comment.
