ABC reported that a nursing home employee was arrested for punching a 93-year-old woman. Anita Watford is charged with abuse or neglect of a protected person.  Watford, a nursing assistant, is accused of punching an elderly woman in the head Oct. 31 at Glen Haven Health and Rehabilitation when she repeatedly spat her medicine out.  Watford told administrators she was trying to hold the woman’s hands down when she “accidentally” hit the patient, but her statement was contradicted by witness accounts.
