Employees Arrested for Nursing Home Abuse
A hidden camera showed abuse from a nursing home employee to a 78 year old resident at Quadrangle senior living facility. The family members of the woman set up the camera in bedroom clock to in order to prove to the nursing home abuse that was taking place, after they had denied it. The video showed the employee hitting and taunting the woman who suffers from dementia.
The county district attorney said,
“The video depicts criminal activity directed at a senior victim in our county. It’s abusive… it’s the humiliation which is most difficult to watch on the video. No senior resident of a facility should be subjected to that kind of behavior, particularly from a health care provider.”
The investigation of the nursing home abuse is ongoing. The main employee in the video has been arrested and is getting charged with aggravated assault and simple assault, along with two other employees.
