Two women who worked at a nursing home facility were arrested for taking nude photos of their elderly patients on cell phones.
The state authorities said a 50-year-old certified nurse assistant (CNA) and a 35-year-old CNA were arrested Wednesday after being indicted by grand jury on four counts each of health care abuse.
The agency said in a media release that the two took numerous nude and degrading photos of patients, some dating back to 2007.
Both have been fired from the facility and were booked into the local jail on $20,000 bonds. For more, read the story.
