Camborne Carer Jailed for St. Ives Nursing Home Abuse (UK)
Camborne carer jailed for St Ives nursing home abuse
11th May 2013
A care home worker from Camborne has been sent to jail for nine months after abusing care home residents.
Fiona Sally Salmon, aged 40, of Fore Street, mistreated patients over a five month period at Cornwallis Nursing Home, which caters for those suffering from dementia and Alzheimer's disease in particular.
On March 14 she was found guilty of seven charges of ill-treating or neglecting residents suffering from insufficient mental capacity.
The court had heard statements from a former collegue that Salmon had rubbed a resident's face with a flannel so hard it caused a nosebleed, squeezed talcum powder into a woman's face and called a resident a grubby b***h.
Other accusations included pinching and slapping residents, according to the prosecution.
She was handed the prison sentance yesterday at Truro Crown Court.
Salmon no longer works at Cornwallis Care Services' home in St Ives
