Taking it out on the individual whom she was supposed to care for, because this migrant worker felt displeased of the treatment from her employer, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…
The female nurse’s aide from Indonesia felt displeased at how her boss didn’t give her three daily meals, she’d taken her anger out on the completely paralyzed, in a vegetative state elderly man, Chang, she’d urinated into the stainless steel cup and made Chang drink, causing Chang to choke, run a high fever, and in critical condition, and as she was caught, she’d excused her bad behavior as “some evil spirit entered into my body and made me do it!”; the D.A. believed that this was the social tragedy of the “lesser abusing the weak”, and recently, the nurse’s aide was indicted on attempted murder, and the D.A. is asking for five years in prison for her.
Based off of investigation, “Di” (age 37) the hired nurse’s aid started working as Chang’s caretaker last September, knew that Chang who’s bedridden needed around-the-clock care, that he relied on the feeding tubes, and had gotten corrected by Chang’s two daughters for not feeding the formulas in.
Di was displeased at the treatment of her employers, starting on October 1st of last year, for three days, she’d taken the stainless steel cup, bottle, and urinated into the containers, then, force fed it to the elderly man, causing Chang to vomit severely, to choke, with his face covered up in urine and fecal matters and vomit, and in the end, she’d, wiped the elderly man’s face off, pretended that it was, nothing.
Because of this, Chang ran a high fever, and was rushed to the hospital, and the medics found that he had the inhalation sort of pneumonia, and urinary tract infections, and his life was spared after the emergency resuscitation measures were done on hi, the family found something suspicious, reviewed the surveillance, and found what the female nurse was doing to the elderly man.
During the interrogation of the district attorneys, Di admitted to being trained as a nurse’s aide, that Chang’s daughter showed her how to draw the phlegm out, knew that the formulas should be injected in through the feeding tubes slowly too, and new from the forms in Indonesian, Chang’s conditions, and because the families didn’t allow her to have her three meals a day, that was why “she’d taken her anger out on the elderly man”.
The D.A. found her to have an unsure motive for murder, that she’d not shown any remorse after what she’d done, and it’d caused the families psychological pains too.
The district attorneys considered how the migrant workers are far from home, that they had to deal with the unequal treatment of their status quos, that the workload had caused the nurse’s aide emotional, physical fatigue, which caused her to develop the feelings of being mistreated by the individuals who’d hired her, which led her to make the wrong decisions, and this case is no doubt, a “lesser abusing lesser” tragedy of the society.
And so, this, is what’s happening, and yes, there are these cases, because there are those who’d hired these foreign nurse’s aide who viewed them as nothing MORE than hired help, because we’re PAYING your wages, therefore, we can, ABUSE you, MISTREAT you, and in turn, these hired help to watch over our elderly, our young, take their angers out on the ones they are looking after, and the problem still won’t be solved, because there’s always a party in that, higher up, status quo (the employers) and those on the bottom, the hired nurses, the migrant workers. And to think that all of this could be prevented, had the family treated the hired help kindly…
