US nursing home aide accused of muffling patient

US nursing home aide accused of muffling patient

An aide at a Grand Junction nursing home has been arrested on charges of using a pillow to silence a screaming patient.
Twenty-three-year-old Errin Hubbard of Grand Junction was arrested Saturday on suspicion of third-degree assault of an at-risk victim and neglect of an at-risk victim, according to The Daily Sentinel newspaper.
Hubbard had an unlisted phone number and couldn't be reached for comment.
A heavily redacted affidavit released by police alleges another nurse's aide saw Hubbard put a pillow over the face of a patient at Larchwood Inns nursing home.
The affidavit says the patient, a woman diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, cannot walk on her own.
