Family Plants Security Camera in Nursing Home Patient's Bedroom, Revealing Alleged Abuse by Nursing Staff

Following several instances where an elderly patient at a nursing home facility was developing bruises, the patient’s family became suspicious of abuse.  The family installed a security camera in the patient’s bedroom at the facility, which allegedly shows the patient being aggressively handled and abused by nursing staff.  Staff had originally reported to the family that the patient fell out of her own wheelchair, which the aides claimed caused the patient’s bruises.
