A spokeperson for Nightingale Group said this was an isolated incident and that those responsible would be punished.

The video was recorded by a resident's relative using a secret camera.

 The video clip was taken by a hidden camera put on a patient’s bedside by his son who suspected that the staff were abusing her mother.

It showed two nursing aides lifting the patient up and throwing her onto a bed. As the elderly woman groaned in pain, one of them was shown slapping her on her mouth:

The showing incident came to light after the Ministry of Health was alerted to the video. It has since suspended Nightingale Nursing Home from accepting new patients.

According to a reader who had a relative staying at the home, most of its staff are from the Philipines and Myanmar.
