How camera captured health workers maltreating 89-year-old woman

Meanwhile, law enforcement disclosed that the workers were captured on camera mistreating an 89-year-old woman who has vascular dementia and is unable to communicate.

BBC reported that in February 2020, the family of the woman covertly placed a camera in her living space and documented video content spanning four days upon observing bruising on her arm.

The footage revealed further the instances of the woman being handled roughly, struck with a pillow and subjected to undignified and disrespectful treatment.

Sadly, the woman passed away in October, prompting a police official to remark that “she should not have spent any of her remaining years suffering such ill-treatment.”

The footage, which was captured for over four days showed the caregivers rough handling the 89-year-old elderly patient.
