Nursing Home Employee Pleads Guilty To Abuse Of Patient

A nursing home employee has pleaded guilty to nursing home abuse after striking a nursing home patient. The employee hit the patient in the face and pushed him, causing him to fall and injure his shoulder, causing a rotator cuff strain. The employee had been at the nursing home for four years.

“Caregivers are entrusted with the health and safety of nursing-home residents, and to intentionally cause physical harm to a resident is a gross violation of that trust,” said the attorney general on the case in a news release. “My office will continue working to root out and prosecute nursing-home abuse.” For more, read the story
