An Ottawa registered practical nurse has been charged with mischief for allegedly failing to give medications to at least 25 residents and manipulating computer entries related to patients and their meds.

Kevin Montero, 48, was arrested and charged Tuesday in a months-long investigation that saw Ottawa police elder abuse detectives work alongside the coroner’s office.

Montero worked at the Garden Terrace long-term care home on Aird Place in Kanata, where Montero’s whistleblower coworkers first alerted management to concerns about how he was dispensing medicine. In one such case, they didn’t hear the pill crusher being used and began to have suspicions that the medicine wasnt being given to residents.

On May 16, Montero was working on one floor and in one wing of the care home. As soon as staff were aware of the allegations, they phoned police, said Patrick McCarthy, president and chief executive officer of the care home’s parent company Omni Health Care. Staff found the discarded medication in the garbage though efforts had been made to disguise them, McCarthy said.

Police were called by the Aird Place care home that same day.

The care home, however, alleged that Montero had been failing to give medications out over the course of the year. Police then began working with the coroner’s office to review the deaths of any residents at the home in the year before the official complaint to find any correlation between their deaths and medicine being withheld. None were found.

Police, to this day, have no evidence to suggest that Montero was allegedly withholding medicine.

Montero has been charged with mischief — for allegedly not giving out medications, vitamins and supplements to at least 25 residents on May 16 — and mischief to data — for manipulating care home records.

“Although these actions are disturbing, there is no evidence suggesting any other employee was involved in this incident,” Insp. Tim Hodgins, who oversees the criminal investigations directorate, said. “Furthermore, there was no evidence that any resident suffered bodily harm as a result of not receiving their medications.”

In the wake of the alleged incident, the care home alerted the ministry of health and long-term care and the college of nurses. Staff put up notices at the home alerting residents to the ongoing police investigation and conducted a thorough review of the pharmacy records of all residents, McCarthy said.
