Redbanks petition wants action taken against current board members

A closed door board of directors meeting at Redbanks Skilled Nursing Center took place Thursday evening and lasted four hours.

This was the first meeting since two board members resigned after saying they were concerned with the way the board handled its business.

Board Chairman Tim Williams told 14 news the meeting was productive and the board will be keeping residents and families informed of any changes.

Williams said the safety of the residents has never been compromised.

A petition is being passed around town asking for action to be taken against the current members of the board. 

Several things are being asked on this petition including the resignation of everyone on the current board and electing a new, unpaid, board of directors.   

The petition is also asking that employee pay be reviewed and they should be paid according to their skills.

It also mentions that if former director Mark Chumbler were to want his job back to hire him immediately.

Phyllis Becker helped start the petition and she says she's troubled with what she's been hearing about Redbanks and wants the problem resolved. 

Becker says, "if I had a parent or a relative right now who I was looking for a place I wouldn't consider Redbanks and that's a shame because its convenient and its a good place or it has been."
