Staff Person “Snaps” Video of

Resident’s Genitals and Enjoys a Laugh

A nursing aid at Monterey Palms in Palm Desert used a cell phone to record and post a social media video clip of an apparently sleeping resident’s genitals. The video begins with the aid cracking “this is what we have to deal with every f—ing day” and then shows the resident lying in bed with no pants. After a closeup of the resident’s genitals the aid and a licensed nurse, who was also in the room, are laughing. The facility was fined $2,000 for this outrageous breach of trust and privacy.
