camera catches abuse at nursing home

Two former employees of a Minnesota nursing home could face criminal charges after hidden cameras  allegedly recorded the workers  abusing at least two residents.
Two nursing assistants were fired from Saint Therese of New Hope on June 29 "following confirmation of allegations that they physically abused two nursing home residents," the senior home said Wednesday in a statement to The Associated Press. 
Eight other nursing assistants were fired for allegedly failing to report the abuse or for using cellphones in resident rooms.
The extent of the alleged elder abuse is unclear.
