Care Home Worker Faces Jail for Bullying
7:01am 15th March 2013
A Cornish care worker faces jail after abusing the people she was supposed to be looking after.
Fiona Salmon from Camborne washed one woman's face so hard she had a nose bleed and sat on another's legs to stop her getting out of bed.
The forty year old worked at the Cornwallis Nursing Home in St Ives.
A jury at Truro Crown Court took just two and a- alf hours to find her guilty on all seven charges of ill-treating or neglecting residents suffering from insufficient mental capacity.
The court had heard Salmon's crimes ranged from pinching and slapping to swearing at residents and telling them their breath stank.
She denied the claims, insisting the comments were "sick."
Fiona Salmon is no longer working at Cornwallis Care Services' nursing home in St Ives and has been warned she faces jail.
She will be sentenced in May.
