Authorities arrested and arraigned a Brighton Beach nursing home aide on Aug. 13 for alleged physical abuse of a senior under her care.

The woman worked as a certified nurse’s aide at Shore View Nursing and Rehabilitation center on Brighton Third Street and Neptune Avenue, where she was captured on video allegedly hitting and humiliating an 82-year-old patient suffering from dementia during a bed bath on April 29, according to court documents.

She was charged with endangering the welfare of an incompetent or physically disabled person in the first degree, a felony, plus a misdemeanor count of health-law violations.

“When families make the difficult decision to place the care of their loved ones in the hands of a nursing home, they expect them to be treated with compassion and respect—not abused and mistreated,” said state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman. “My office will continue to prosecute anyone who abuses and mistreats elderly and vulnerable New Yorkers in this way.”

The video shows the woman allegedly striking the patient several times, throwing water at his face and body, and hitting him in the face with his own fist.

A special assistant attorney from the Medicaid Fraud Control Unit’s regional New York office is prosecuting the case.
