The company that owns the 5 nursing homes where workers are on strike claims acts of disruption and sabotage. Zachary Janowsky of the Yankee Institute for Public Policy says HealthBridge has filed complaints with the state Health Department and the Danbury Police Department.
Police reports state that resident's medical wristbands were removed as were IDs on room doors and wheelchairs.
No arrests have been made, but according to the Danbury Police report, the persons involved are presumed to be employees that are on strike.
HealthBridge spokesman Lisa Crutchfield said in a statement that until the suspects have been identified they won't allow any striking employees to return to work. She says they can't expose residents to the risk of any harm at the hands of employees.
