Two nursing home workers in Oklahoma were fired and arrested this week after family members discovered the women had been abusing their 96 year-old relative who suffers from dementia. The family installed a hidden camera in her room and caught the abuse on tape.
According to the police, one female nurse is seen slapping the patient with a rubber glove and then stuffing the glove in the elderly woman’s mouth while the other nurse stood and watched. In another incident, a nurse is seen lifting the woman onto the bed and then pushing her head until she laid down.
The 23 and 28 year-old women have each been charged with neglect by caretaker.
