Nursing Home Abuse Caught on Tape
Two certified nursing assistants in Florida were recently caught on tape physically abusing a 75-year old Alzheimer’s patient, illustrating the power of modern technology in the fight against nursing home abuse.
After noticing bruises on his father’s legs, a man decided to set up a hidden camera to see if he could find the cause. Over a three-week period, this camera recorded multiple instances of abuse at the hands of two CNAs. This abuse went beyond reactionary to include unprovoked assault, harassment, and brutality against this elderly patient, prompting criminal battery charges to be brought against the employees.
This case is, tragically, far from isolated. Every year, thousands of nursing home residents are physically, sexually, and emotionally abused by those who are charged with caring for them. This gross injustice must be dealt with swiftly and effectively to protect the health and happiness of victims.
