Pierce County health care provider licenses suspended on alleged pattern of neglect of a resident

OLYMPIA – State health officials immediately suspended the licenses of Pierce County certified nursing assistant and agency-affiliated counselor Lilian Cubi (NC.60433144, CG.60507228) pending further legal action.

Cubi has been charged with second-degree criminal mistreatment, a class C felony, in Pierce County Superior Court. Allegations say Cubi’s pattern of neglect of a resident shows that she is unable or unwilling to provide adequate care to vulnerable adults in her care.

Cubi cannot practice in Washington until the charges are resolved. She has 20 days to respond to the charges and to ask for a hearing.

The legal documents on this case can be seen online by clicking the link on Provider Credential Search on the Department of Health website; copies can be requested by calling 360-236-4700.
