Nursing Home Employee Guilty of Abuse of Elderly Residents
A former nursing home aide has pleaded guilty to abusing residents.
The 25-year-old female aide admitted wrong doings against three of the six nursing home residents whom she was accused of abusing at the facility.
From her employment period of October 2006 to July 2008, the health department says, the aide allegedly inappropriately touched the private parts of residents and repeatedly made sexual advances toward one of the men. There are also allegations of physical and emotional abuse.
The guilty plea assures that the aide will never return to similar employment. For more, read the story.
