Nurse’s aide accused of abusing elderly patient

An East Patchogue nursing aide has been arrested for allegedly abusing an elderly patient.



Prosecutors say Marie Michael tied an elderly nursing home resident's ankles together with a plastic bag to restrain them.



According to prosecutors, the incident happened in July of 2015 at the Bellhaven Center for Rehabilitation and Nursing in Brookhaven.



Officials say the 41-year-old initially admitted to it, but later denied being involved.



Michael is due back in court later this month.
