Hidden Nanny-Cam Catches Abuse of Elderly Woman at Bucks County Facility

According to CBS news, a Philadelphia woman is facing misdemeanor charges of Neglect of Care-Dependant person and Simple Assault after a nanny-cam caught her abusing a 90-year-old woman at Arden Courts Residential Assisted Living facility in Bucks County.

Relatives of the elderly woman had noticed suspicious bruises, so they set up the hidden video camera to check for potential abuse by a caregiver. Disturbingly, the family’s suspicions were confirmed when the nanny-cam caught 36-year-old Baindu Kromah physically mishandling the 90-year-old victim on two separate occasions. During both instances of abuse, the victim was filmed crying in pain and pleading for help.

The elderly population of Pennsylvania is ever increasing, and families want to be confident that their loved ones are receiving compassionate care in nursing homes and assisted living facilities. Yet, sadly, nursing home abuse and negligence is not a rare occurrence. Family members of elderly men and women in nursing homes must stay vigilant for signs of abuse. Not only are these actions criminal in nature, but they may also be sufficient cause to pursue a civil law suit.
