This case involves alleged elderly abuse by a nurse in a nursing home. The plaintiff, in this case, was a seventy-nine-year-old female who frequently attempted to walk the halls at night, which had been determined to be due to her dementia. The normal night staff, and nurse responsible for the plaintiff’s wing, usually explained the situation and ushered the plaintiff back to her room. On the night in question, the normal nurse switched her shift with a nurse who only worked during the day, and was unaware of the plaintiff’s condition. During the night, the nurse found the plaintiff wandering the halls and aggressively inquired what the plaintiff was doing. The plaintiff responded, and the defendant/nurse grabbed her forcefully to pull her back to her room. The plaintiff became frightened and tried to get away, shouting and screaming. The defendant-nurse released her grip and the plaintiff fell to the ground, breaking her hip. Plaintiff retained an expert that specializes in the use of force for this case.
