Caregiver Caught Punching Elderly Patient With Dementia 11 Times





When the elderly are admitted to health care facilities, their families are assured of their safety and eventually, recovery. However, the family of an 89-year-old patient with dementia recently released a horrifying video showing a caregiver punching the victim 11 times.

A caregiver at an Ottawa nursing home was caught on surveillance video punching the elderly patient 11 times in the face. The recording shows Jie Xiao, a 44-year-old caregiver, struggling while changing the diaper of the patient, Georges Karam, who suffers from both Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases.

The careworker was changing the patient's diaper aggressively.

The family of Karam had been concerned after they noticed that he suffered a string of unexplained injuries while admitted at the Garry J Armstrong long-term care home. Daniel Nassrallah, the patient’s grandson, decided to install a high definition camera in the patient’s room.

When they were watching the footage from the patient’s room a few weeks after, they were shocked at what they saw. The caregiver acted aggressively and threw the patient around the bed. Daniel told the Citizen,

“I literally stood up and fell down, my legs gave way because I didn’t know how to respond to this.”

In the video, the patient took a pair of swipes, and when the last one came closer to Xiao’s face, he punched the elderly man a series of rapid punches. He hit the poor man 11 times.

The care provider released a series of rapid punches.

The family rushed to the facility after calling the cops to arrest Xiao. He even admitted to the crime and a court hearing is expected to pursue.

Xiao even threatened the elderly patient.

Janice Burelle, the general manager of community and social services, said:

“Long-term care will not tolerate any form of abuse of residents. There can be no excuse for even a momentary lapse in the high standards that we, residents and their families expect of the people to whom we have entrusted the care of those who call our facilities home.”
