When the resident requested a larger incontinence brief, [the Nurse Aide told the resident] to lose weight.”
A written statement by another Nurse Aide documented that the verbally abusive Nurse Aide “identified that while he/she was transferring the resident back to bed via a Hoyer lift, [the verbally abusive Nurse Aide] made reference to the resident’s weight by calling the resident fat, suggesting that the resident stop eating, go on a diet, and made a comment [that] the resident’s weight was disgusting.”
