Two Women Face Elder Abuse Trial

Two women are set to stand trial on unrelated charges that they abused elderly patients in their care. One 27-year-old woman is set to go on trial for the elderly abuse of a 98-year-old woman in her care at the nursing home. The other 21-year-old woman is charged with elderly abuse after attacking a 76-year-old woman. They face up to five years in prison if they are convicted. One victim had bruises, a bite mark on her hand, scratches on her forehead and two bruised eyes. Both women passed background checks before being hired. It is important for all nursing homes to do sufficient background checks and all employees. This will help decrease the physical abuse seen in these two cases.
