Employees in a nursing home in Michigan are accused of abusing an elderly wheelchair-bound man, who was recovering from surgery. A video captured the nurses slapping the patient’s head, violently throwing him on his bed and using racial spur to insult him.
Employees in a nursing home in Michigan are accused of abusing an elderly wheelchair-bound man, who was recovering from surgery.
Six children of the patient have filed a lawsuit against Autumnwood of Livonia. They claimed that their 89-year-old father – Hussein Younes was totally mistreated during his stay there. Their father was was admitted to Autumnwood in May 2015 after undergoing abdominal surgery.
The 89-year-old father – Hussein Younes was totally mistreated during his stay. The reason why the nurses did do is that they want to kick him out of the nursing home.
Hussein Younes suffered from a stroke, leaving him weak and dependent to others’ care. Just after a few weeks staying there, the patient told his children that he was abused by the staffs at the nursing homes. His children immediately investigated and was told that the patient was delusional and all he said was just false accusation.
There were several bruises and cuts on the patient’s head.
The patient, however, continued to complain. His children also began to notice that there were several bruises and cuts on their father’s head.
One of his children said that his father lost a lot of weight while staying at that nursing home. He also had to suffer from serious anxiety attacks, causing him to shake, quiver, grunt and yell. “Which, we found not quite normal.” His son said to the media.
The family decided to set up a secret camera in his father’s room to find out the truth. That’s when they saw the whole disgusting and horror footage of their father being abused.
Within just two days, they recorded more than 100 video clips of Younes’ nurses insulting, hitting and throwing him violently.
Talking about reasons why the nurses did so, they guessed that he may be discriminated due to his accent. Younes has a Middle Eastern descent while the nurses are Trump’s supporters.
Later in the video, the nurse said she ‘can’t stand this A-rab’ and all he does is ‘f***ing hollar’. Another nurse in the room then roughly picked up Younes from his bed and tossing him in his wheelchair.
At one point, when the patient grunted loudly, the nurse shook his head and cursed at him. ‘I’m sick of your stupid a**. Get you’re a** up in here. F***ing b****,’ she said angrily.
The nurse is also seen smacking Younes on the head because he won’t stop grunting and making noises.
According to the family, Younes was denied water and had his ‘call button’ taken away from him so he couldn’t request assistance. The lawsuit also states that the nurses falsely claimed Younes was combative to try and get him kicked out of the nursing home.
Younes was removed from the facility in December 2015 and transferred to a local hospital then to another nursing home.
His son said he and his family came forward with their story to shed light on what Autumnwood did to Younes.
“I don’t advise anybody to put their family over there”, his son said
‘I’m here to tell the story to the media, because what happened to me and my dad and my family, what we’ve been through, is unbearable,’ he told Hometown Life. ‘The purpose that I’m here (for) is to let the world know that this place is no good. I don’t advise anybody to put their family over there.’
