Incident at State Veterans Home

Murfreesboro police say a Tennessee State Veterans’ Home employee has been suspended after allegedly admitting to the Home’s facility administrator that she abused a patient.The report says on Oct. 19, an employee told the facility administrator she purposefully manipulated a patient’s bed to cause him pain. The patient was a “vulnerable adult who cannot take care of himself due to his medical conditions,” according to the report.
According to online records from the Department of Health, the employee accused of the abuse is a certified nurse aide. It does not appear that her license has been suspended or revoked. 
The Tennessee State Veterans’ Home facility administrator did not immediately respond to request for comment on the nurse aide’s suspension.
