Recently, the administrators of a local chain of church-based nursing homes with an excellent reputation got a shock. Some newly hired carers who had freshly earned Certified Nursing Assistant's (CNA) ratings, were found to have been poking an elderly woman in the breasts and laughing at the woman's distress. One also spit on the woman and giggled.
When one member of the group had an attack of conscience and reported the incidences, administrators were outraged. The CNAs were not only fired, but prosecuted, as they should be. Their behavior would turn the stomachs of most people with any heart at all for vulnerable elders.
