Three women who worked at a senior living facility in Georgia have been charged over their alleged role in a video involving a 76-year-old stroke victim.
According to police, the clip had been titled “the end” and featured Jorden Lanah Bruce, 21, Mya Janai Moss, 21, and Lizeth Jocelyn Cervantes Ramirez, 19, allegedly using a vape and using profanities while ignoring the patient.
The trio were working at Bentley Senior Living Facility in Jefferson, and had reportedly been sent to monitor the unnamed patient on June 13 while waiting for hospice to arrive, WSB-TV reported.
Speaking to the news outlet, a Jefferson Police Department detective said:
“It was going to be an extensive time before the hospice nurse could be there, so these three employees were supposed to closely monitor the patient,”
Instead, another employee reported to police seeing a clip on Snapchat which featured the accused women of smoking a vape pen, swearing and making obscene gestures at the camera.
The women were arrested on June 22. They have since been charged with exploiting an elderly and disabled person.
It is unclear whether the women had been fired from their role at the facility.
