Breitbart ^ | December 4, 2008 | Associated Press

ALBERT LEA, Minn. (AP) - Two teenage girls who worked at a nursing home have been charged with abuse, accused of taunting, spitting on and groping residents who suffered from Alzheimer's disease. According to the criminal complaint, filed Monday, 19-year-old Brianna Broitzman and 18-year-old Ashton Larson laughed earlier this year as they spat in residents' mouths, poked and groped their breasts and genitals, and at times mocked them until they screamed.

Shameful. I hope they get jail time but odds are they won't. I see this attitude among more and more kids today... Contempt for the rules of civilized society & behavior. They should rot in hell.

So much for “Minnesota Nice”... I guess it shouldn’t be surprising that a scumbag like Al Franken did so well in this state.

What a shame. Hot (in the case of the blonde), and thoroughly despicable.

I’ve seen abuse in nursing homes, but not like these girls. They are sick, and will be old some day. I bet they will be scared witless. Once, I saw a girl drop a lady from a Hoyer lift to the bed too hard. I asked her if she would put her mother in this place. She just walked away. I turned her in, but they didn’t fire her. I’ve seen them get rough with Alzheimer’s patients and gave them hell, along with reporting them. My husband has Alzheimer’s, and he will stay home until he dies, no matter how rough it gets.

These two little scuzbags undoubtedly wanted to be nurses at some future date.

I’m glad they were caught now.

God Bless You. I wish you were in my family! Good luck in your journey with your husband. I hope you have some good support.

I was delivering candy and cards to a nursing home back when I was about their age, and never in a million years would I dream of doing something that appalling to helpless seniors. It’s just sick.

When I was doing nursing school rotations, I spent enough time in nursing homes to know that a) I’d never work in one; and b) my parents would never be put in one; and c) I was never going to go into one alive.

Buy long-term care insurance, with an in-home care option, and do it TODAY!

From The Smoking Gun account --

...nursing home residents were spat upon, spanked, improperly touched, and tormented by the teenagers earlier this year. Excerpts of the misdemeanor complaints can be found below...

..."put her bare butt" in the face of a Good Samaritan Society resident ...

...Larson once "inserted her finger into a resident's rectum," spit water on another "vulnerable adult," and would deliberately bathe a resident in a rough manner so the elderly man would get an erection....

Al Franken was quoted as saying "That's despicable... how much do they charge per hour?"

Respect and forethought of one's own future is nonexistent anymore apparently.

This story is almost as disgusting as the story of the high school cheerleader babe who sadly enough died via God's will in WI a few years back and male class mates shortly after the funeral were looking for a good time only to find that sealed tombs are used and they couldn't gain access but were caught in the middle of their selfish endeavors.

Respect is rapidly approaching extinct status in our country these day's.

I’ll have to say that my father was in a nursing home for the last three weeks of his life, had advanced prostate cancer, and they hand fed him and treated him like a baby. He constantly expressed gratitude to them for everything.

They’re both slouches. Get back to me in twenty-five years on that. Who you really are shows after that short length of time. They both will learn that time flies soon enough, as they may already suspect and fear. - I suppose that perfect fear casts out love just as the opposite is true.

I worry all the time about something like this happening to my grandmother. It breaks my heart to see this disease rob her of everything she has ever known. She has survived for over twelve years with Alzheimer's but she is just an empty shell of her former self. I hope they make more progress with the treatment before my father starts showing signs of the disease. Alzheimer's is one illness that is just as hard on the family as it is on the patient.

It's the parents that are true culprits. Whenever we see cruelty and mass murder committed by young people, one queston is never asked: who are the parents?

This may be why they don’t allow residents to possess a handgun.

Good for your family. Not all residents are treated badly. The help know who they can treat badly, and “get away” with it. They have compassion for those who are dying, but treat Alzheimer’s residents differently, thinking the residents, “know better”, and are faking some of their illness. No one with Alzheimer’s is a fake. It’s devastating to see once beautiful, smart people become like children or worse. Some linger for dozens of years in a zombie like state. Those are the ones most susceptible to idiots.

You are correct. It is harder on the families. I worked with Alzheimer's residents for a few years, and watched the families suffer. When the neurologist diagnosed my husband, and said the word, "Alzheimer's", he didn't even flinch. A few days ago, I asked him if he was happy. His reply, "Why shouldn't I be?"

With so many there, I have to wonder if this is what we get with the schools requiring mandatory "voluntary" community service work.

Not to excuse them of their actions, but I can understand it breeding resentment. There are acceptable ways to handle that, rather than abuse innocent third parties, especially vulnerable ones.

One thing that sticks in my mind more than any other memory in 20+ years of acute-care hospital work, was having to turn in an RN...and one I had rather liked as a person until then...for patient abuse. And for ordering me to slap a senile patient from a nursing home, "because that's all those people understand".

Six bed ward, and it was so upsetting that a patient in the next bed coded during her diatribe to me for refusing her order.

Fortunately, my night Charge Nurse investigated, and forwarded a report to the unit's Head Nurse, who also investigated.

The RN was fired.

The patient who coded didn't make it.

The patient I was ordered to slap was eventually transferred back to a nursing home.

There is NO excuse for abuse.

Lemme tell you , FRiend, that aides in nursing homes only have to a) have a relatively clean criminal record, b) pass a drug test, c) be certified or willing to get certified, and d) to work very hard for VERY low wages.

All the “screening” in to world would not have stopped this. However, you are correct: the home should have caught this a long time ago.

The nursing home industry is a disgrace.

Yes, it is all a “numbers” game. Too little staff, too little time per patient.

Yep, that happens all the time. The nursing homes seem to be short of help, but won’t hire. They stick with the state minimums on everything. The ones who do show up for work, and actually care, are over-worked, which sometimes make them short with the residents. I’ve seen nurses’ aids fret over the poor quality time they gave to specific residents. Their standards need to be raised across the board. We wouldn’t allow this crap for our children, so why do our parents get treated so badly?

I am sure something in these chicks behavior would have set off alarm bells long before now.

Not necessarily. If they're sociopathic, you'd never guess, they have the ability to convince people that they are saints, that they could never be guilty of such vileness. They will look, wide-eyed and innocent at you. Butter wouldn't melt in their mouths.

It's all a very well-polished act. They are demons in human form.
