Nursing director at former Scott County  nursing home indicted

ABINGDON — The nursing director of a now-closed Scott County nursing home was indicted recently by a federal grand jury on eight felonies stemming from allegations of wrongdoing at the facility.

 Gina Bradley, aka Gina Begley, no age or address given, was indicted Sept. 12 on eight counts of making false statements related to health care matters in connection with her time at the Brian Center, which changed its name to ContiniumCare of Weber City several months before closing in August 2012.

 The indictments were unsealed following Bradley’s Sept. 24 arrest. She was released from custody on a $10,000 bond.

 A jury trial for Bradley is scheduled to begin Nov. 20 in federal court in Big Stone Gap. U.S. District Court Judge James P. Jones will preside over the case.

Bradley is the second former employee of the nursing home to be indicted in recent months.

Melissa Ann Forester, a former registered nurse at the Brian Center, pleaded guilty Thursday to a single count of making false statements related to health care matters.
