    OH - Virgen Caraballo for elder abuse, Cleveland, 2011


    Former Metro Nurses Aide Virgen Caraballo pleaded guilty to seven counts of abusing an elderly woman in her care.

    78 year-old Esther Piskor is shown on video getting tossed around like a rag doll by Metro Nurses Aides at their Prentiss Center Nursing Home.

    OMG, this just infuriates me all over again! Thank goodness Mrs. Piskor's daughter had hidden a camera and caught this abuse on video.

    Whatever sentence this Caraballo woman gets will never be enough. I cannot imagine being elderly, unable to care for myself, and being abused like this by the very person who is supposed to help you. At one point there were 1 or two others seen in the video who did not seem to be gentle with Mrs. Piskor either.

    Caraballo is to be sentenced in Jan., 2012. I hope she is sentenced to many, many years in prison.
    Thoughts and prayers for the people of Paris and all of France!
