Pinoy nurse in UK caught attacking Alzheimers patient

A 30-year-old Filipino nurse — Jonathan Aquino — was caught on a hidden camera attacking an 80-year-old Alzheimer's patient in the United Kingdom, a report of the news site Daily Mail said.

Suspecting that her mother was being abused, the daughter of patient Maria Worroll, a retired school canteen manager, placed a hidden camera in her mother's bedroom in a home care institution, the report said.

Aquino, who had no previous convictions, was sentenced to 18 months in jail for "dreadful breach of trust."
The Daily Mail said Jane Worroll, 30, captured "harrowing" images showing how Aquino struck her mother Maria on the face "before slapping her arms repeatedly."

Aquino was also seen striking the victim in the stomach area four times on June 21, 2011 in
Kentish Town, North London.

Upon learning that his actions were caught on camera, Aquino was apologetic, the report said.

Aquino, who had an 18-month-old daughter, was later dismissed from his job.

Jane said somebody as vulnerable as her mother should not have to suffer unprovoked attacks at the hands of her supposed carers.
