Concerned Son Captures Horrific Abuse in Nursing Home on Hidden Camera

Camille Parent was pretty upset when he found that his elderly mother had suffered some injuries at the nursing home she was staying at. His mom had been through the ringer and had the bruises to prove it, but staff at the home assured him that was due to confrontations she had with other residents at the facility. As AWM shares, something wasn’t sitting right with Parent.

That led him to set up a hidden camera in his mom’s room, and he would be completely stunned by what he found. He would find that other residents were going in and out of his mother’s room as they pleased to help themselves to her stuff.

The staff was acting abusively towards his mother as well. The woman suffers from Alzheimer’s disease, so that was apparently a green light for them to abuse her as opposed to simply doing their jobs.

Parent was outraged, and he forwarded the footage to the bigwigs at the facility.

“Based on what I see on the preliminary investigation, it is totally unacceptable and I will make sure that actions are taken to prevent any such abuse in the future,” said the CEO of Saint Joseph’s.

Hopefully, those actions involve the CEO cleaning house at the facility. There is zero excuse for the abuse, and it sounds like security at the facility needs to be ramped up as well. Families of the residents shouldn’t have to place hidden cameras in place to figure out what’s going on, as there should already be plenty of surveillance in place at the facility.

“I think it was disgusting. I think it was an obscenity what they did to that woman, and if it had been a child or a younger middle-aged person, they would have never gotten away with it,” said said Lynn MacDonald, the scientific director or the National Initiative for the Care of the Elderly.
