BOULDER, Colo. (AP) An administrator of a now-shuttered home in Boulder that helped residents through aging and death is accused of overseeing a poorly trained staff and of trying to cover up an incident in which a resident suffered extensive injuries.

The Daily Camera reports Claire Gordon, administrator of Anam Chara, has been indicted on several charges, including negligence and tampering with evidence. She is accused of lying on an incident report after a patient's foot was badly burned in a tub of hot water.

She also is accused of failing to report physical abuse between residents and the misappropriation of resident property.

The indictment says staff told investigators the home took on residents with increasingly complicated medical conditions, but they were not given additional training.

Gordon couldn't be reached for comment.
