Residents relocated from adult foster homes
OWOSSO — Ten residents at two adult foster care homes have been relocated and the homes' operator has been charged after authorities said they were not receiving proper care.
The Lansing State Journal reports that 58-year-old Diane Kay Lott of Owosso was arraigned this month on 10 counts of misdemeanor vulnerable adult abuse.
Lott entered a not-guilty plea and was released on bond.
The Michigan Attorney General's office said investigators, acting on a complaint from another state agency, made unannounced visits to the homes and learned three part-time employees didn't have CPR or first aid certification. A medication provider certificate also had expired.
The Associated Press was unable to find a telephone number to reach Lott for comment.
