A certified nursing assistant (CNA) at Forestview Nursing Home has been charged with assault and battery of a disabled nursing home resident. The charges stem from a May incident in which the CNA verbally abused and physically assaulted a disabled male patient. The incident was witnessed by another CNA who reported the incident to nursing home administrators.
At her arraignment, the CNA entered a plea of not guilty and was released on personal recognizance with the condition that she not be employed in a setting involving elder care or services. She must also verify her employment with the Department of Probation and was further ordered not to have any contact with the victim. Read more about this abusive CNA here.
