A 93 year-old patient at the St.
Michael’s Lutheran Home in Fountain City has accused a nursing home assistance of hitting her in the head numerous times, leaving a big bruise on her head. The patient told a social worker about the abuse, who later reported the incident.
The 38 year-old assistant has denied any wrongdoing to the patient. Her original charges were of felony intentional abuse and causing bodily harm. Worried that a jury would convict her, the assistant took a lesser charge of misdemeanor negligence. A judge sentenced her to 40 hours community service, anger management, and counseling.
