Washington: An Indian-American nurse in Illinois has been arrested on charges of abusing a 92-year-old woman with dementia, a media report said on Wednesday.

Hansmattie Singh, 47, who works for Clermont Heath and Rehab, was accused of slapping the woman that left her with a bloody scratch under the nose, the South Lake Press reported.

The patient told police that Hansmattie Singh hit her. But the nurse argued that the patient had to be force-fed due to low blood sugar.

According to police, it was determined that Hansmattie Singh grabbed the woman`s face firm enough for her fingernails to leave scratches on her face. The nurse was released after furnishing a USD 2,000 bond.
