Abuse of Nursing Home Resident Caught on Video

By December 3, 2012 No Comments

The family of a woman who was abused in a nursing home is sharing the video they captured on a hidden camera in hopes of protecting other dependent adults, media reports.  Doris Racher says she and her sisters visited their 96-year-old mother daily and spent several hours with her every week.

The sisters were concerned that other residents might be taking some of their mother’s things, so they installed a hidden camera. When they reviewed the recordings, they saw the nursing home staff members stuff latex gloves in their mother’s mouth.  They also saw two women violently move their mother from her wheelchair to the bed.  The video ultimately resulted in criminal charges against one of the workers.  Fox News reports that another worker fled the area and hasn’t been seen since.
