Nursing Home CNA Suspended For Abuse Of Patient

A nursing home employee is under investigation due to the alleged abuse of a patient.  A certified nursing assistant is accused of pushing a patient into a bedrail resulting in bruises. The patient was also left in a position of pain due to previous fractures. She was afraid to say anything for fear the CNA would return.

The nursing home suspended the employee and several investigations are underway.  Police were notified and conducted an investigation filing a report. The state department of inspections and appeals is also pursuing an investigation.   For more, read the story.
