A former worker at a nursing home has been charged with sexually molesting a patient while another patient slept in that same room. Prosecutors said that the 46-year-old worker sexually assaulted the 62-year-old woman who had recently suffered a stroke at the nursing home. The man had worked there since August, but has subsequently been fired. The elderly assault was discovered when another aide noticed the victim acting strange towards the victim. The man is currently out of custody on bond. Elderly sexual assault has become an all too common phenomenon and occurs here in Chicago, Illinois.
