As nursing home abuse lawyers, we want to bring justice to those that abuse the elderly. We recently noted that a patient in New York has been allegedly abused by her caregiver. The Brooklyn Daily reports that authorities arrested and arraigned a Brighton Beach nursing home aide on Aug. 13 for alleged physical abuse of a senior under her care. The woman worked as a certified nurse’s aide at Shore View Nursing and Rehabilitation center on Brighton Third Street and Neptune Avenue, where she was captured on video allegedly hitting and humiliating an 82-year-old patient suffering from dementia during a bed bath on April 29, according to court documents. The video shows the woman allegedly striking the patient several times, throwing water at his face and body, and hitting him in the face with his own fist.
There is no place in assisted living centers for such abuse.
We would welcome the chance to discuss nursing home abuse at any point with you about injuries to your loved one.
