A shocking surveillance video captured employees at a North Carolina nursing home scolding of a patient for soiling himself, and left him on the ground after he fell and called for help.

The patient’s daughter, Rebecca Knapton, installed a camera in her 68-year-old father of the clock after the man told her that he was mistreated by the staff of Universal Health care in Raleigh, WRAL reported.

The image of the man falling off his bed around 4:20 p.m. Knapton told WRAL her father was recovering from a stroke in time. The patient was heard calling for help for more than an hour when an employee is seen walking into the room, check the patient’s and walk without help. The man again cried out for help, until a couple of staff came into the room and asked why he was on the floor.


“What are you doing?” a member of staff was heard to ask. “What are you doing on the ground?”

“I need help,” replied the man. He told the employees that he had an accident while waiting for help. The employee violence the man for the accident and changed his clothes, as he remained on the floor.

“You were on the bed. You have decided to go on the floor, so don’t complain that it’s cold,” a staff member scolded.

“You’re doing something very very wrong with your life. What have you done? You’re suffering so bad, so you’ve done something wrong. Yes, you did,” the employee continued.

The patient was laid on his bed around 5:40 p.m., but they continued to lecture him.

“How old are you? You’re supposed to be able to enjoy your retirement. Instead you should look what you are doing, pooping on yourself. Shame on you,” a staff member said. “Shame on you. Shame on you.”

A worker then proceeded to take a pillow under the head of the man.


Knapton provided WRAL with the images. Choice Health Management Services, the nursing home, the parent company of a report released about the video in which the employees involved in the incident were terminated.

“Once the facility became aware of the family’s allegations, an investigation was started. We understand that the family care and regret that this has happened. The employees involved were terminated for their inappropriate behavior. The other employees received additional in-service training,” the statement read.

The state said they were investigating both the incident and the nursing home.
