Baton Rouge Woman Arrested for Kicking Patient in Her Care

AG Jeff Landry Encourages Public to Report Fraud and Abuse

BATON ROUGE, LA - Attorney General Jeff Landry today announced the arrest of a Baton Rouge woman accused of committing battery against her Medicaid patient, and he encouraged the public to report similar allegations of abuse to his Medicaid Fraud Control Unit (MFCU).

“It is always disturbing to hear of Medicaid recipients allegedly being harmed by employees whose job is to care for them,” said General Landry. “As my office and I continue to fight Medicaid welfare fraud, we encourage the public to report abuse and neglect in residential care facilities.”

Flora Williams, 53 of Baton Rouge, was arrested on one count of Simple Battery of Persons with Infirmities for allegedly kicking a disabled patient multiple times. Williams was investigated and arrested by General Landry’s MFCU and booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison.

If you have information or evidence of Medicaid welfare fraud, abuse, and/or neglect in residential care facilities – report it to 888-799-6885 or on www.AGJeffLandry.com. Callers do not have to give their names.
