Our mothers and fathers spend the majority of their adult lives raising us as children and taking care of us. Our parents influence us and help make us into the people we are today. When they reach a heightened age, they may no longer be able to care for themselves. In many instances, a nursing home may offer the best possible scenario for caring for your mother or father. They are designed to provide constant supervision and compassionate care. Unfortunately, that standard is not met in every nursing home in America. Sometimes, in fact, there is a severe breach of trust and a breach of the duty of care.
Just recently, two certified nursing home assistants in Tampa Bay, Florida were arrested and charged with battery of an elderly person. Yashika Jones and Rose Blaise were working for a nursing home, and were responsible for the care of a 76-year-old Alzheimer’s patient named Dale Wilson. Mr. Wilson’s son, whose name is also Dale, came to visit him on several occasions and noticed bruising on his arms and legs. He also communicated, non-verbally, that the nursing home staff were being too rough with him. In an effort to uncover the truth, Mr. Wilson’s son left a hidden video camera in the nursing home. What the camera recorded was nothing short of shocking.
Specifically, the video camera captured footage of Jones and Blaise punching and kicking Mr. Wilson while he laid in bed. Mr. Wilson’s son, horrified by what he saw, immediately called the police who arrested both staff members and charged them with assault and battery of an elderly person.
