Nursing home head charged in alleged assault on resident


(Feb. 1, 2013) The administrator of the Berlin Nursing & Rehabilitation Center was charged in January with assaulting a resident there.

Donald Scott Boger, 49, of Ocean Pines was served with a summons in mid-January charging him with a second-degree assault on a woman on Oct. 16, 2012.

Boger was scheduled to be in Circuit Court in Snow Hill on Wednesday for an initial appearance. He is scheduled to have a jury trial in that court on April 4.

Information filed by the Worcester County State’s Attorney’s Office in Snow Hill gave no details of the alleged incident.

In a press release dated July 9, 2012, Berlin Nursing & Rehabilitation announced the hiring of Don Boger as administrator “leading the drive to provide healthcare services to Berlin and surrounding communities.”

Boger is quoted in that press release as saying he had been an administrator for more than 12 years, “with the past eight years concentrating in Delaware communities. I thought it was time to come home and concentrate on the health care needs in my own backyard.”

Berlin Nursing & Rehabilitation, located on Healthway Drive near Atlantic General Hospital, has served the Eastern Shore for more than 30 years.

Boger did not respond to a call from Ocean City Today.
