4 Ontario, Canada Nursing Home Employees Suspended For Abuse
Four employees at St. Joseph’s at Fleming’s long-care living facility in Ontario, Canada have been suspended after being captured on film abusing and neglecting resident Hellen MacDonald, who suffers from dementia.
A report by CTV News describes the horrific occurrences videotaped over a three week period on a hidden camera that Camille Parent, Ms. MacDonald’s son, installed in his mother’s room.
The video footage shows a staff member shoving a feces-covered rag in Ms. MacDonald’s face, another blowing his nose in her sheets before making her bed, and several employees changing MacDonald’s diaper with her door wide-open.
CEO Alan Cavell has still not offered his opinion on the matter and the employees have been suspended with pay while investigations have been launched.
Parent told CTV News: “To see my mom … to see what happened to her … I’ve never had my heart beat like it beated that night.”
