    Christann Gainey faces involuntary manslaughter charges in the death of Herbert R. McMaster, Sr.

    A Pennsylvania Health Department report says administrators failed in their essential duties at a Philadelphia senior care facility where the father of President Donald Trump's former national security adviser died in April.

    The 141-page report released over the weekend says Herbert R. McMaster Sr.'s fatal fall April 12 was his fifth during a four-day stay at Cathedral Village. The report says staff failed to complete required neurological checks, develop a fall prevention plan or attempt to resuscitate McMaster.

    The Pennsylvania attorney general's office charged a temporary nurse at the facility with involuntary manslaughter last month.

    A spokeswoman for Cathedral Village says the facility immediately implemented a corrective plan.

    A lawyer for the McMaster family says they are looking for answers and to prevent something similar from happening to another family.
