Abuse and Assault
I have been representing victims of nursing home abuse and neglect for over 25 years. Hundreds of victims of abuse and neglect. I still am shocked when I discover a caregiver physically or sexually assaulting a vulnerable adult. I do not understand it. I cannot tolerate it.
I recently saw an article about Jacques Wagner. He is a caregiver at Belair Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center. Police accuse him of assaulting two elderly patients. Wagner is facing charges of aggravated indecent assault without consent, indecent assault without consent, neglect of care of a dependent person and abuse of care of a dependent person. Wagner, an RN, admitted to being alone in a room with the two residents when he touched them sexually.
I hope they throw the book at him so it can be a deterrent for other caregivers. This type of abuse must stop.
