Atchison Sr. Village Allegations and Response
05/08/2012

A former employee and current employees of county-owned Atchison Senior Village expressed their concerns to County Commissioners about various ethical and rules violations alleged to have been occurring at the nursing home.

Former employee Tenisha Blythe came to the Commissioners, alleging that Administrator Peggy House undermines the actions of Director of Nurses Sarena Olson.

House met later on in the day in executive session with County Commissioners to talk about the allegations.

She says while she can’t comment in great deal on several of the allegations due to legal purposes, she addresses the allegation of misuse of vehicles.

House says all employees must put the residents’ first and resident care first.

House further stated to KAIR Radio that no one should be fearful to lose job positions as a result of addressing the Commissioners.

She says while she is open to hearing employee concerns, and prefers that they address them to her first; however, she is not opposed to employees addressing Commissioners.
