Prosecutors in Alabama have announced more arrests and elder abuse charges against nursing home employees of Glen Haven home. Monica Danielle Adams and Marilyn Annese Marshall are accused of holding the patient down while another nurse’s aide punched her. The reason: the resident wouldn’t take her medicine. Both are charged with Violation of the Adult Protective Services Act.
That aide, Anita Watford, was arrested last year after being accused of hitting the patient in the head with her fist. Watford told administrators at the Glen Haven home in Northpoint that the woman forced her hand to hit her head, but witnesses contradicted her account, the AG’s office said.
