Bronx Nurse Injures Nursing Home Patient

A nurse at a Bronx nursing home is facing criminal charges after he allegedly punched a disabled resident in the throat.

According to a report from the New York Daily News, the blow knocked the nursing home resident to the ground. In addition to the charges that will stem from that display of abuse against the nursing home resident, the nurse then allegedly lied to authorities and nursing home staff when he said that the resident "attacked" him after he had taken a carton of milk from him.

The name of the nursing home is not disclosed in the Daily News report but it was noted that surveillance footage shows a different scenario than what the nurse told authorities. The hidden camera footage shows the nurse, 54-year-old Lennox Seymour, pushing the disabled resident to a wall, slugging him in the neck and dropping him to the ground. Seymour is facing up to four years in prison if he's found guilty on all charges he's facing. The nursing home resident suffered a bruised neck and buttocks, according to the Daily News report.

A Persistent Problem With Nursing Homes

This is just the latest in a seemingly never-ending raft of reports of nursing home abuse at facilities across the country. As more Americans require the services of a nursing home, these care facilities are put under increased pressure to delivery quality assistance.

Based on many of our previous reports on nursing home abuse, more residents are being put at risk of abuse and neglect because so many nursing homes are making questionable staffing decisions or have less safeguards in place to prevent abuse or neglect.

Some telltale signs that a nursing home resident may be subject to abuse, according to our previous reports, are bedsores, weight loss, and injuries sustained in falls.
