I watched the video on one of the news channels in the area and it turns out that the woman had a fractured thoracic vertebrae...they also performed
CPR after she collapsed in the bathroom.
As a health care professional, who has performed CPR on people young and old, I am having a hard time believing that this woman died from the actions
of the nurse. The "eyewitness" may have witnessed the nurse helping the woman to the restroom and also witnessed her arrest. Could be the nurse was
"yelling" at the elderly patient (trying to get her attention/to follow direction) but the woman was at the same time, unfortunately, having a cardiac
arrest. Maybe she wasn't shaking her to "abuse" her but to get her to come around if she had lost consciousness.
I find this whole story and the charges quite odd. The woman worked there for nearly thirty years as a nurse...you'd think they would have witnessed
some type of rude or nasty behavior way before this incident.
Idk, something about this really bothers me, especially the cause of death. I guess the coroner couldn't find any other cause of death for this 77
year old, unless the media didn't report the entire autopsy findings. Anyhow, I hope she is able to afford a good lawyer, but again, if she did hurt
this defenseless elderly woman, then I hope they lock her up for good.
