A nurse at an assisted living facility in Florida has been arrested and charged after she allegedly assaulted a patient, Fox 35 reported.
Kassandra Aihe, 24, was charged with battery on a person 65 years or older. She allegedly hit the patient in the face with an object and slammed her face on a wall, causing facial fractures.
The patient was walking down a hallway when Aihe found her and tried to help her back to her room, according to an arrest report. The patient “became combative,” according to the report, and Aihe was seen on surveillance footage allegedly grabbing and pulling her hair to control her.
Once the nurse had control, she pulled the patient to her room and pushed her inside, the report added.
When they were inside, Aihe was heard screaming for about five minutes before another staff member entered the room to help out. That nurse said in an incident report that she went into the patient’s room to find her bleeding from her face.
Aihe was also required to write an incident report, which said she struck the patient’s face with an object and then struck her face on the wall, causing facial injuries and bleeding.
