HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) — The Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene says it has revoked the license of a Boonsboro assisted-living center where an 84-year-old Alzheimer’s patient was badly hurt in a  fall through an unfinished floor.

The agency announced the revocation of the program at Soma Manor House Friday. The license was suspended shortly after the Aug. 9 incident.

Owner Dickson Tabi faces trial March 25 on charges of reckless endangerment and neglect of a vulnerable adult.

Police say he waited at least five hours to call an ambulance after Eileen Rindone fell through a hole in a second-floor room under renovation. She suffered broken ribs and vertebrae, and a head injury.

Investigators say Tabi tried to cover up the incident before acknowledging he had neglected to lock a stairwell door.
