CNA Retaliates

Fox13News reported the arrest of another nursing home employee for assaulting a vulnerable adult in St. Petersburg Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.

Police arrested the Certified Nurse Aide (CNA) after she was caught slapping an elderly patient across the face in a nursing home. Dolly Moultrie was responsible for assisting with changing the victim.

Moultrie took retribution after the vulnerable adult accidentally drooled on the caregiver’s arm while talking. In retaliation, Moultrie struck the patient across the face. Another CNA witnessed the assault and immediately reported it. Moultrie was then arrested and charged with abuse of the elderly.

This is clearly a lack of training and an example of caregiver burnout.
