Nursing Home Aide Setenced for sexual abuse

A nursing home aide in New York was sentenced to seven years for sexually abusing a 61-year-old patient at Amsterdam Nursing Home in Morningside Heights. The woman was partially paralyzed, unable to speak and was considered "completely dependent" after suffering a stroke prior to her admission to the home.

Jose Ramos was convicted of one count of Sex Abuse in the First Degree, one count of Endangering the Welfare of a Vulnerable Elderly Person in the Second Degree and one count of Endangering the Welfare of a Physically Disabled Person. In addition to incarceration, when he finishes his sentence, Ramos will be under supervised release for ten years and will have to register as a sex offender. The victim's family may also choose to bring a New York nursing home abuse claim against the offender to recover financial compensation.

Ramos was assigned to assist the victim for the midnight shift, and was supposed to be helping her with personal hygiene. A duty nurse, however, noticed the victim's call button lighting up three different times and went to the victim's room, where she found Ramos in the process of sexually abusing the victim.
