new jersey philadelphia attorneys nursing home abuse employees arrested prank

Nursing Home Abuse is a disturbing trend plaguing the long term care facility industry.

On Wednesday, August 4th, six nursing home employees at the Valley View Skilled Nursing Facility in Ukiah, California were arrested on misdemeanor criminal charges for a cruel and abusive prank they played on a select number of residents.

According to a release from the Attorney General’s office, each of the six employees greased up the bodies of their patients with slippery ointment cream at they end of their shift so they would be slippery for the oncoming shift of workers. The residents that fell victim to this nursing home abuse were chosen because they suffered from an advanced level of dementia and could not fight the treatment.

The charges filed against the workers include injury to an elder or dependant adult; battery committed on an elder or dependant adult; conspiracy; and battery committed while on hospital property. Attorney General Jerry Brown said, “As part of a cruel and and shocking prank, these caregivers abused defenseless elders. This dispicable behavior by people placed in a position of trust.
