Two former workers at a Pennsylvania nursing home are in jail after police say they were caught on camera abusing an elderly patient.
Investigators say the abuse happened at the Arbors at Buck Run, a nursing home in Bucks County, Pa. The daughter of a patient at Arbors became suspicious about how her mother was being treated and decided to take action, according to investigators.
“The patient’s daughter installed hidden cameras in her mother’s room and captured the abuse that’s alleged in this case, including one of the accused literally dancing in the face of a wheel-chair bound victim,” said Detective Eric Landamia of the Lower Southampton Police Department.
Police and the Pennsylvania Department of Public Welfare began to investigate. According to the DPW, the two workers were seen “dumping” a resident on a bed and “manhandling” the patient.
