According to an incident report, an employee had to wake the patient in order to change her bed sheets when the patient became agitated. The employee pushed the patient back into her bed and stated to the patient that she would hit patient if she fought back again.

Two days after the incident at the nursing home, a bump was discovered on back of the patient’s head. During the investigation, police reviewed surveillance video of the patient’s room, which showed the incident occurring early Monday morning.

The employee of the nursing home was held in jail overnight and charged with simple battery.
