A former Philadelphia senior care facility nurse pled guilty to misdemeanor neglect of a care-dependent person and tampering with records in the April 2018 death of H.R. McMaster Sr., father of Trump's former national security advisor. 34-year-old Christann Gainey appeared in court on Monday, 3/28. She had been charged with felony counts of involuntary manslaughter and neglect, and falsifying documents which were dropped as part of the plea agreement. She was sentenced to 6 months of house arrest and 4 years of probation. Gainey will not be allowed to seek reinstatement of her nursing license or work in a care facility during that time.

84-year-old McMaster Sr. died on April 13, 2018, after falling and hitting his dead. He wasn't found until hours later. He had been admitted to Cathedral Village, a senior care facility in the Roxborough neighborhood, after suffering a stroke on April 9th. Gainey was the Licensed Practical Nurse on staff that night. She was supposed to perform neurological tests and take vital signs of McMaster Sr. periodically through the night. Gainey did not actually perform those checks, but she did falsifying the records making it looking like she did. She even entered a record for a time after McMaster would have already been dead. Prosecutors had video evidence showing she did not make the checks at the times she entered into records.

"The defendant has now been held accountable for her actions that led to the tragic death of Mr. McMaster," Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro said in a release. "We have several active and ongoing investigations into long term care facilities and nursing homes across Pennsylvania, and will hold anyone who knowingly neglects a care-dependent person in Pennsylvania accountable."
