Anne Nunemann, 29, from Sussex County, Delaware was recently found guilty of abusing an elderly woman in her care. Nunemann worked as a certified nursing assistant at the Methodist Manor House in Seaford, Delaware, and reportedly abused an 89-year old patient suffering from dementia. The corresponding report elaborates how Nunemann would place a trash bag over the woman’s head while she was bound to her wheelchair. The abuse continued, but has not left any permanent physical injuries on the patient.
Nunemann was fired from the Methodist Manor House, and has been banned from working at any other elder care facility, but only for six months. The U.S. Department of Health and Social Services has been alerted about her record, and can bar Nunemann from working in any facility that has received federal health care funds for at least five years.
