Here is an upsetting story! Joyce Stanley, 37, of Madisonville (TN) has been charged with willful and physical abuse after reportedly hitting a blind 74 year old nursing home resident with a clipboard and an incontinence pad, as well as pulling her hair and slapping her. Stanley was a certified nursing assistant at Etowah Health Care Center. Stanley is being held at the McMinn County Justice Center in lieu of $20,000 bond.
My take: I believe hidden cameras or “granny cams” would have discovered this abuse earlier and I doubt that this was the first time nurse Stanley mistreated nursing home residents.
