Camera Captures Abuse

Several employees of a long-term care facility have been suspended and investigations have been launched after the son of a patient released hidden camera video of his 85-year-old mother being mistreated and neglected. He installed a motion activated hidden camera following several incidents that he thought were suspicious.

He captured video of a staff member tormenting his mother with a rag smeared with her own feces, a man blowing his nose on her clean bed sheets, an elderly male resident helping himself to her belongings and more.

The son took matters into his own hands after he was not satisfied with the facility’s response to his concerns of the now revealed alarming and disturbing footage.
