Video showing alleged mistreatment of elderly woman at nursing home sparks outrage

A video sent to the Ministry of Health has sparked outrage for its portrayal of alleged mistreatment of an elderly woman at the Nightingale Nursing Home. The footage was taken by a hidden camera on a patient's bedside. The video, which can be viewed below, shows the patient sitting next to a bed naked, and later being thrown onto a bed. In one scene, a staff member was seen slapping the patient after she moaned in pain. Contacted last night, the nursing home, which has been operating for more than 30 years, told The New Paper this was an "isolated incident". More in The New Paper on Friday (June 10).
