A nursing assistant at Thompson House Nursing Home in Brattleboro, Vermont has been charged with second-degree murder after allegedly injecting a resident with insulin causing the resident to die after becoming brain dead.

The nursing assistant is also accused of stealing from the 83-year-old victim by stealing her credit card and withdrawing cash. The credit card continued to be charged five days after the victim died. The accused pleaded not guilty to the charges and is bring held on $150,000 bail.

After she was found unconscious in her room, the victim was taken to Brattleboro Memorial Hospital and was determined to be brain dead and was removed from life support.

Two weeks prior to the death of the victim, another resident under the same nursing assistant’s care was hospitalized for low blood sugar levels.

Cases of nursing home abuse are truly horrible. A nursing home abuse lawyer can help obtain some justice for the victim and the victim’s family.
