Six Months in Jail for Former Nursing Home Employee

Eric Larrabee, 24, of Madison, Wisconsin, slapped an 85-year-old patient who died 10 days after he slapped her across the face on Feb. 10, 2008. Larrabee then appeared to a former co-worker to have a “look of enjoyment” on his face, said Assistant Attorney General Eric Defort, who prosecuted the case. Larrabee, who was originally charged with one felony count of patient abuse, pleaded guilty Thursday to three counts of misdemeanor battery.
The other incidents involved grabbing and twisting the woman’s arm on other occasions. Viewers to the Henson Fuerst nursing home blog are encouraged to demand that the facilities to which they entrust family and friends for long-term care conduct criminal background checks and psychological evaluations on all caregivers in their employ.
