This case involves the assault of a senior citizen by a nursing home worker. The plaintiff, a seventy-three-year-old female, suffered from Alzheimer’s. The plaintiff had to be monitored twenty-four hours a day, as she frequently wandered around the facility. The nursing home records indicated that on numerous occasions, the plaintiff wandered into other patients’ rooms. On the night in question, the plaintiff was not supervised and wandered into a restricted area. An employee found the patient and grabbed her to lead her back to her room. The plaintiff remained confused, but the nursing home worker continued to ignore the patient, leading her back to the room. The worker then threw the plaintiff into her room, causing her to fall and sustain a bruised hip and laceration on her left hand. Additionally, the plaintiff sustained a bruised arm because of the tightness of the worker’s grip.
