Nursing home abuse incidents not isolated, say experts

Angela Mulholland, CTVNews.ca

After the release of shocking video of an elderly woman with dementia being subjected to abuse and humiliation at a long-term care facility in Peterborough, many are saying the incident is far from isolated. Four employees at St Joseph’s at Fleming long-term care facility in Peterborough, Ontario, have been suspended after the son of a resident there brought hidden camera footage to media outlets showing a worker taunting his mother with rags smeared with her feces and another worker wiping his nose on her clean sheets. The nursing home is now conducting an investigation.
