Nursing Home Staff Starts Patient Fight Club
Three employees of a nursing home encouraged patients to fight each other and recorded the event. The staff members are heard on the video saying, “Punch her in the face.” and “Are you recording? You gonna send it me?” The women who ran the “fighting ring” did not intervene because one of the patients, they said, “always caused problems.” In the video that they also shared on social media, one patient is being strangled, one is punched and a patient lies on the floor and cannot get up. No injuries were reported or discovered, according to officials.
Of the three women accused, one has an additional charge from when she shoved a patient into the room and yelled at her to go to sleep. The facility fired the employees after these allegations and is suspended from accepting new patients. For more details on this story, read here.
