Wondering how the citizens of Brookfield felt about a felon working in a nursing home or hospital? Would you all want a felon taking care or your loved one? Beware...it's happening right underneath your noses!

just because someone is a felon doesnt mean theyre a bad person. you can get a felony by carrying prescription medicines in anything other than their bottle. You should be ashamed of yourself for being so judgemental. everyone has a past and you should be happy theyre holding a steady job and helping people instead of getting into more trouble! I would much rather a felon take care of my family than no one take care of them at all and if you havent noticed a lot of the healthcare places in this area arent exactly paying the highest salaries so the people you think would be perfect for the jobs are somewhere else making twice the money. be appreciative that people do work at these places, im sure the residents dont care aboutu what they did in their pasts! good grief!

I agree with Jackie whole heartedly. You're pretty pathetic "Cathy". Are you really that unhappy with you're life that you want to try and bring others down? It's none of you're business, and felons are employed everywhere. If a felon is working at a nursing home, it obviously wasn't a drug felony or a dangerous crime. So no it doesn't bother me. And my mother and my grandpa were both in McLarney & very well taken care of. My mother passed 2 weeks ago so I'm very happy this said felon was working there because every employee there was incredible. Be careful to judge others, I'm sure there's things about you that could be judged as well.

They should not however be working in a care facility if they are convicted of felony theft. Who knows what they would take or do.

Not all felons are allowed to work there. i know that Mclarney Manor doesnt hire anyone with an assault charge. Also, to work in a care facility in Missouri you have to register on a very long list and they will make sure you aren't hiding anything and if you get fired from one nursing home, any other place in missouri could see it and why

Cathy what are you doing underneath someone's nose? Cheated on some income tax, bounced a few checks, ran some stop signs, drove without insurance, slept with someones husband, etc. I know you are not perfect...perfection goes to God. With that being said sweep around your own door. Its already hard for felons and people like you make it even worse. There just may be a day that this world will need all the help they can get and then they wouldnt give a dang if you were a masked murderer, as long as you can help...remember not everyone wants to stomach the responsibilities that comes with nursing, so be thankful that there are people do...One thing people with your thinking should know FYI there are more people that get charged with nursing home crimes that have a clean history than those who do not but it only goes public when it envolves someone with a conviction. America Land of the Judgmental....

AMEN ALICE! Cathy Weaver you aren't one to judge. Why do you continuously try and stir the pot. People in glass houses really shouldn't throw stones. Everyone has made mistakes in life, it's not your place to criticize anyone because you my dear, have made more than your own fair share! You're a very sad individual. Does it make you feel better about your own pathetic life to talk about others? It must because you do it non-stop. Worry a little bit more about your own messed up life. I'm from Chillicothe, I know why you got ran out of Marceline, and know about your sex scandal with the prison inmate. You love felons so why are you talking trash anyways? You're a pathetic example of a parent. Lets put all your business out on front street and see how well you like it. Don't judge others because they sin differently than you do!

Wish there were more people like you here in Ohio. I am an RN that got in trouble and can't find a job here that is related to nursing. I only want to work and be a productive member for society. You should see how many of our esteemed members of Congress have felonies and other charges, but pass laws that make it hard for felons to find work.

I laugh at these people who LOVE to pass judgement, they are the pathetic ones who I am certain have no clue about life other than in their own world(s) and they should be reprimanded for everything they have ever done so they can experience all the misery that comes to someone who has been placed in 'the system'.

Why isn't there a place that we can discuss the topic of what a felony does to a person that is reformed and that with just one opportunity will try to go the distance no matter the odds.

I am a two time felon. I got one felony 12 years ago and my other one 7 and a half years ago. I have been trying to find work for almost two years and have gone through countless interviews and always seem to get the same answer of your background check came back rejecting me getting the job. I have been turned down even by wal-mart even after the 7 year mark for background check\s. Like some of these other people have said, everybody makes mistakes and I thought that when you pay your debt to society you where suppose to be ok but that is just a bunch of crap. These people at these nursing homes with felonies are probably better employees than most because they have to be.

I am a registered nurse with a bachlors degree. I have been a nurse for 20 yrs. I unfortunately received a felony last year in a different state (Ohio ). I live in Indiana. My charges were for a hit and run. I couldn't renew my nursing license last year for financial reasons. I have been looking for a job since. I can't find one and I'm going to lose my house. No drugs or alcohol were involved. And I have never been in trouble before. Please help me out. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
