A certified nurse aide at the Park Ridge Living Center in Greece, NY has been arrested and charged with endangering the welfare of a vulnerable elderly person, a felony crime. The charges stem from an assault which occurred on November 5, 2012, when the aide, Groven Glenn, became angry with an 83-year-old resident, throwing a chicken bone at her and slamming the wheelchair in which she was seated into a doorframe, resulting in physical injury to the victim.
If convicted of the charges, Glenn faces up to 4 years in prison for his actions. The state’s evidence is based on surveillance video footage, and Glenn has himself partially acknowledged his wrongdoing during interrogation.
