Saddle River NJ Nurse Accused of Assaulting Disabled Patient

Saddle River NJ Assault ChargesA Saddle River woman who used to work as a nurse was recently arrested and charged with aggravated assault after she allegedly abused one of her patients.

The suspect is a 64-year-old resident of Saddle River, NJ. She was employed as a registered nurse and hired to take care of a disabled man in his residence.

According to NJ State prosecutors, the suspect slapped the victim on more than one occasion.

When the victim’s mom learned of the alleged abuse, she notified police.

Law enforcement subsequently investigated the allegations and determined that enough evidence existed to place the suspect under arrest. The crucial piece of evidence was reportedly a video that showed the suspect mistreating the victim. According to officials, the victim’s mom set up a camera to film the suspect’s interactions with her son.

The victim is 26 years old and paralyzed, which left him helpless to defend himself against the alleged abuse.

Fortunately, the victim did not sustain any serious injuries during the alleged assault incidents.

If the suspect is convicted, she could potentially be sentenced to 18 months in NJ State Prison.

The suspect is unlikely to work as a registered nurse again: the NJ State Board of Nursing has already revoked her nursing license.
