Nursing Home Patient Ridiculed In Video On Snapchat
A nursing home patient has been abused by violating her rights to privacy. She was photographed and videoed naked. The footage was then posted to Snapchat. Her caregivers ridiculed her in the video. The individuals involved in the video are being investigated and the nursing home is being reviewed for policies and procedures related to the incident.
The attorney for the nursing home recognizes the need to address the issue and is cooperating. As a spokesperson, he stated, “We invite that investigation, because we want those policing agencies to get to the bottom of this and make sure that these kinds of things don’t happen ever again," said nursing home's attorney who called the images of a naked elderly woman "shocking".
