Nurse's Aide Arrested for Taking Inapropriate Video of Nursing Home Residents

A nursing home employee, 30, was arrested on Wednesday after the facility performed a two week internal investigation. The former nurse's aide (CNA) has been charged with three counts of injury to the elderly or disabled by exploitation. The charges are a third-degree felony and carry a total of over $100,000.

Upon investigation by the facility, it was found that the CNA who had been working at the facility for the last six months, had made "improper video recordings" of residents at the facility using her cell phone. The nursing home reported their findings to police and apologized for the incident. The CEO of the nursing home, said the CNA and another woman, who was also involved in the recordings, were both terminated on Aug. 13. The second woman was not arrested due to a lack of evidence.
