I am appalled at hearing this story. Deasmond is gay and he didn't mind letting people know. He told us that he was married to another man. He must be mentally ill to make advances to an elderly man. Mt. Pleasant Manor should be sued for this. The staff there is rude and always seemed to have a chip on their shoulder. I'm not talking about the administration, they were very helpful etc. But the Nurses were rude and I would never have a loved one to be admitted there. The nurses also gossiped like crazy about the guests that came there. The majority of the nursing staff are black and my goodness, they had some ghetto attitudes. It's really ashame how people are treated there.

There should be constant surveillence in every patients room. Deasmond seemed like a nice guy and I can't believe he did something like this. I'm just glad that the victims family thought to contact a Detective to set up a camera. It most likely that Deasmond has done this to other patients.

As a family member with a loved one at Mount Pleasant Manor, I agree with the comments from "Night Shift". It comes as no surprise that abuse and neglect of patients occurs at Mount Pleasant Manor. I have been yelled at and verbally abused by the head of nursing when expressing concerns about the care of my loved one. If the head of nursing behaves like this toward a family member, it should come as no surprise that less trained staff do so as well with residents who are more vulnerable. I hope the public does not view my comments or the abuse incident made public on December 13 as isolated incidents or restricted to just this one facility. Horrible living conditions exist for seniors in virtually every nursing home - even those facilities that look nice.
