An assistant at a nursing home has been accused of hitting a 93 year-old patient in the head numerous times.
The patient told a social worker that the assistant hit her in the head every time she came in to care for her. The blows to the head have left a large bruise on the patient. The 38 year-old female assistant denies these accusations.
A judge sentenced the woman to anger management classes, counseling, and 40 hours of community service after her initial charges of felony intentional abuse and causing bodily harm were dropped to a misdemeanor charge of negligence.
