WAREHAM - A former certified nurse assistant at Forestview Nursing Home was arraigned in Wareham District Court on Friday in connection with the alleged assault of a 55-year-old disabled resident at the facility, according to the state Attorney General's Office.
Marcella Reed, 25, of Carver, was charged with assault and battery on a disabled person, the office said in a press release. In July, that office began an investigation after the matter was referred by the state Department of Public Health. Authorities allege that in May, while Ms. Reed was assisting a disabled male patient, she verbally and physically assaulted him. The incident was witnessed by another CNA who immediately reported the incident to her supervisors at the nursing home, the office said.
At her arraignment before Judge Brian F. Gilligan, she entered a plea of not guilty and was released on personal recognizance with the condition that she not be employed in a setting involving elder care or services.
She must also verify her employment with the Department of Probation and was further ordered not to have any contact with the victim.
The case was continued to Nov. 6 for pretrial conference.
