The 911 call was received at 5:51 p.m., according to the 911 center.
Tabi told state police “he made many mistakes and panicked after Mrs. Rindone fell,” court records say.
The first charge of abuse or neglect of a vulnerable adult was for allowing Rindone entrance to a part of the assisted living center that should have locked, Updegraff said. The second count was for neglecting Rindone’s needs and letting her lay in bed all day before calling any medical services, he said.
“When loved ones put their loved ones into ... an assisted living place, they’re putting their trust into somebody,” Updegraff said. “Obviously, they didn’t uphold their trust.”
“I find it amazing that, that something like this could happen,” Updegraff said.
Soma Manor’s license has been suspended on an emergency basis, according to an email from Karen Black, a spokeswoman for the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. The license could be permanently revoked and/or the business could face civil monetary penalties, Black said.
The state Office of Health Care Quality sent two surveyors to the assisted living center Friday to investigate after being notified of the incident, Black said in a phone interview Monday.
Updegraff said Adult Protective Services relocated the other two residents Friday afternoon to another assisted living center in Washington County.
Updegraff said Rindone’s family also was notified of the situation. She has a daughter who lives in the Hagerstown area and a son who lives in Florida, he said.
The only employees of Soma Manor are Tabi and his wife, Updegraff said. Soma Manor got its license in August 2011 and admitted its first resident in April 2012, he said.
Police believe Tabi’s wife arrived home, at the assisted living center, just before the ambulance arrived Aug. 9, Updegraff said.
Black said Soma Manor officials can request hearings before the director of the Office of Health Care Quality and the Office of Administrative Hearings. If the request is made, those hearings would be held promptly, she said.
Rindone’s daughter, Michelle Carpenter, told The Associated Press in a telephone interview that her mother had been moved to Soma Manor from another facility in the spring.
She said Soma Manor seemed like a nice place and Tabi seemed to be a caring person. She was sometimes concerned, though, because he was often the only caretaker there, she said.
