Nursing home patients assaulted; caregiver charged

BOARDMAN

A Youngstown woman accused of assaulting two elderly women in her care will be back in court May 8.

Jolita M. Monserrat, 33, of Youngstown, was arrested Friday and did not enter a plea at her Tuesday arraignment.

Monserrat, who is on administrative leave from Briarfield of Boardman, a nursing home, was charged after an internal and police investigation of the assault of two patients there.

A supervisor at Briarfield told police a new employee was training with Monserrat and reported seeing Monserrat grab and shove a female resident and slap another resident on the leg, according to reports.

The residents, both of whom have dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, had injuries consistent with the reported assault, police said.

Jolita needs to be banned from ever working with the sick or elderly.

The "Briarfields" has always been under scrutiny, noted for abuse towards residents and staff. The food served resembles garbage, the care is sublime, the amount of staff is often short-handed and poorly managed. The current corporation running this place in Boardman should be thoroughly investigated for their business practices.This facility should be shut down.No matter how much they to refurbish that dump, it will remain a terrible place to be. All of Briarfield facilities are the same way. Is this a surprise to the community? It's been going on for years!
