A nurse was filmed allegedly beating and cursing at an 89-year-old male resident of the Autumnwood of Livonia Nursing Home in Michigan.
Salim Younes told WDIV that he hid a small video camera in his father’s room in December 2015:
What happened to me and my dad and my family is unbearable.
We agreed on to put a hidden camera in a clock, an alarm clock next to his bed, to see what was going on.
In one video clip, a woman, who appears to be a nurse, slapped the elderly man in the head.
A second clip shows an employee rolling the senior into a closet.
Husein’s family is suing Autumnwood.
Attorney Jonathan Marko, who represents the family, told WJBK that the nurse, Tammy, was reprimanded in Virginia for using the N-word, and was fired from two nursing homes.
She has reportedly lost her nursing license in Michigan.
Worst of all, they sent Mr. Younes a bill for abusing his father. That’s despicable.
In response, Autumnwood’s lawyers issued a statement:
The employees identified from the video have been terminated, and additional training has been provided to all employees. Autumnwood continues to assist the involved state regulatory and law enforcement agencies with their investigations of the former staff and is committed to continuing to provide quality care to all of the residents and families they have the privilege to serve.
