Horrific Treatment in a New York City Nursing Home

The nursing home worker didn’t know the camera was rolling as she jerked the wheelchair out from under her elderly patient, causing the woman to break her hip in the fall.

According to a special report by CBS 2HD, the incident happened at the William Benenson Rehabilitation Pavilion in Queens, New York. The accused nurse, Jessie Joiner, appeared in court this week to defend herself against what appear to be black-and-white allegations–not only does the video evidence clearly show the patient being dumped on the ground, nurse Joiner ignores the woman, who was writhing in pain, for three minutes until another employee arrives on the scene.

To learn more about this frightening story of alleged abuse, check out the WCBStv site: NYC Nursing Home Horror story. You can even watch the video there (top right part of the screen, to the right of the story column).

This story and video makes us feel a bit sick. HensonFuerst nursing home abuse lawyers take pride in helping to protect vulnerable elderly people. We have fought to make nursing home facilities take responsibility for abuses by their staff, and we take every report of abuse or neglect seriously. We hope that justice prevails in this NYC case, and that other workers realize that bad deeds will eventually get brought to court… and that they never know when a camera is watching!
