Former nursing aide pleaded no contest to abuse by a caretaker
HENNESSEY, Okla. – A former nursing home aide pleaded no contest to one count of abuse by a caretaker.
Authorities say 51-year-old Carla Jean Hill worked at Hennessey Manor Nursing Home as a long-term care aide when investigators say she abused a 90-year-old resident.
Police say she slammed the victim’s wrist on a bathroom rail multiple times while lifting her from the floor.
Hill was sentenced to serve 30 days in the Kingfisher County Jail, along with an eight-year suspended sentence.
Hill is on probation until 2024 and will not be able to work in the health care field during that time. She was also ordered to pay more than $4,700 in fines and court costs.
