3 WORKERS AT FAR ROCKAWAY NURSING HOME CHARGED WITH ABUSE

FAR ROCKAWAY, NY (WABC) –Three workers at a Queens nursing home were arrested for allegedly abusing patients.

Authorities say the abuse happened at the Peninsula Nursing and Rehabilitation Center on Beach Channel Drive in Far Rockaway.

Two nurses and a nurse’s aide were reportedly caught on camera by the facility’s surveillance system either abusing the patients or doing nothing to help.

In one instance, a nurse is seen dragging a 51-year-old debilitated man on the floor by his arm. The patient is bleeding and in obvious pain, and other nurses are seen standing around and watching.
