AGs Office Investigates Hospital Abuse

December 11th, 2008 by flanews

Reports of abuse at a Florida veterans hospital have led to the arrest of a health worker. Ramnarace Singh was arrested in Palm Beach County this morning.

The Florida Attorney Generals Office began investigating Singh after receiving reports he attack a wheelchair-bound patient. Attorney General Spokeswoman Sandi Copes said Singh took advantage of his position.

Its disgraceful anytime you receive reports that an elderly or disabled person has been taken advantage or even worse, physically abused. But to consider the fact the allegations, this time, stem from a someone who was in a position of care, who had been trusted with the well-being of that person, it really is a shame, said Copes.

If Singh is convicted he faces five years in prison and a 5,000 dollar fine.
