Nursing Home Worker Accused of Abuse

May 29, 2003 | The Baltimore Sun

A nursing assistant has been charged with elder abuse and assault after allegedly striking an 84-year-old resident of Longview Nursing Home in Manchester, the state attorney general's office announced yesterday.

Sue Allen Head, 34, of Ortanna, Pa., who was charged May 20, was assigned to care for the woman, who could not communicate and suffered from end-stage dementia and multiple medical problems, the attorney general's office said.

On Oct. 31, Head struck the patient with such force that the blow left a mark, and an eyewitness reported hearing the assault from across the room, according to the attorney general's office.

The case, which is being prosecuted by the office's Medicaid Fraud Control Unit, is to be heard July 18 in Carroll County District Court. If found guilty, Head could receive fines of up to $5,000 and a prison sentence of up to 10 years, the attorney general's office said.
