Sensing something wasn’t right, the family of an Ohio Nursing Home patient elected to put a hidden camera in their loved ones room. After several months of recordings, the camera provided what the family had suspected all along– that staff at the Prentiss Center for Skilled Nursing Care (part of the MetroHealth) were indeed abusing the woman.
In all three nurses aides were seen mistreating the woman and have been disciplined by the facility. Now the Ohio Attorney General is conducting their own investigation and may pursue criminal charges against these nursing home workers.
