EUGENE, Ore. – Two former staff members at a memory care facility in Eugene are facing criminal mistreatment charges after prosecutors said three patients died in their care.

Former Executive Director David Meisener, as well as the nurse Jandyra Dubofsky, are the ones accused of criminal mistreatment.

According to court documents, the two worked at SouthTowne Memory Care, which was formerly known as SouthTowne Living Center. According to court documents, Meisner is charged with one count of criminal mistreatment and one count of identity theft. While Dubofsky is charged with one count of criminal mistreatment.

In the documents, the state alleges the two mistreated three patients between June 1st and September 6, 2016. They describe the patients suffering from ongoing skin irritation which was related to inadequate showering and nail care. The state alleges this could have been a factor in the deaths of those three patients.

KEZI reached out to SouthTowne Memory Care, management declined to speak on the matter.

Dubofsky license has been suspended for at least a year. Both, Meisener and Dubofsky are no longer employeed at the care facility.
