A 58-year-old home health aide has been arrested after surveillance cameras allegedly captured her abusing the 91-year-old woman she was charged to care for, including threatening to leave her on the floor all night if she fell.
Carla Carabello, of Plainfield, New Jersey, pleaded not guilty to neglect of an elderly person Monday.
She was arrested at her home after a guardian or relative of the 91-year-old Denville victim filed a complaint. A criminal complaint alleges video showed Carabello refuse to help the woman out of bed and leave her on the floor for a prolonged period of time after she fell, despite a serious head injury.
Bail for Carabello was set at $10,000. Information on her attorney wasn't immediately available, and it wasn't clear which service employs her.
