Thought I read they only disciplined the staff (not sacked?). I think she has got serious issues and shouldn't be working in this environment.

For those who have old folk taking care off by maid, it is also good to install a cctv to check on them.

This is so terrible!!! used to volunteer at a nursing home when I was younger and bedridden elderly are usually quite heavy so you need to be patient to handle them.

I hope these staff are just doing this for just a paycheck :sad: , surely they have parents and wouldnt want them to be treated such a manner.

I was :shock: too when I read the new from the newspaper.

Then I think of my Ah Ma if she had been receiving such treatment too when she was in the 'Old Folk Home' sigh.. but she is gone liao...

Had personal encounter with this home. My granny was sent there after she suffered a stroke and nobody knew how to take care of her. When we visited her then, which was 10 years ago, the sight was pathetic. I recalled they would ignore my granny's requests to release herself and expected her to do it in the diapers.
After 3 weeks of being there, we said Bye Bye to the home and brought her home. I am therefore very happy that their bad deeds have finally been made known.

thinking very hard. If an employer of a domestic helper slaps the maid, he/she can expect to go to jail.

But in this case, the errant staff is/are only 'disciplined' (whatever that means).

Ummm, something not quite gel?
