GREENFIELD, Ind. – A CNA has been fired and may lose her license after she took a picture of a patient who crapped his pants and posted it on her Facebook.
Taia Armstrong, 30, was a certified nursing assistant at Kindred Transitional Care and Rehabilitation working with a paraplegic 51-year-old male patient who had crapped himself.
“This is too funny. I need to take a picture of this,” court documents say the certified nurse’s assistant told a co-worker.
The co-worker asked her not to take the picture, but Armstrong couldn’t resist, as getting a picture of a shit-covered ass belonging to a helpless man she was supposed to be caring for was just too hilarious to pass up.
She ended up posting the picture on her Facebook wall where I am assuming she felt her friends and family would find it just as funny as she did. That’s when the co-worker went to her supervisor and reported Armstrong.
Armstrong was fired after admitting she took the picture and her case has been referred to the State Department of Health, which oversees CNAs, and could take away Armstrong’s CNA license. On Thursday, Armstrong was in jail on a voyeurism charge.
