An assisted living facility administrator is being charged with neglect of the elderly.

Authorities say 31-year-old Rhaimley Romero did not report a resident's declining condition after an outpatient procedure on Thursday.

Romero was advised by the home health nurse that if there were any changes in the resident's condition to contact her immediately.

Authorities say staff of Good Samaritan Retirement Home told Romero twice to report the resident's health and they did not receive instructions on how to care for the resident.

When Romero arrived to work Monday, the home health nurse was told about the resident's declining condition and told Romero to call 911 and have the resident transported by ambulance.

Romero is currently logged at the Levy County Jail.
