  • Text size: + -

The New York State Attorney General's Office charged a Certified Nurse's Assistant with endangerment of a patient at the Greece living center where he worked.

Groven Glenn, 52, is charged with a count of endangering the welfare of a vulnerable elderly person; a felony.

He's also charged with endangering of an incompetent or physically disabled person and willfully violating health; both misdemeanors.

According to the AG's Office, Glenn was caught on tape throwing chicken wing bones at an 83-year-old patient at the Park Ridge Living Center back on November 5. He is also accused of slamming a wheelchair into a door while the patient was sitting in it.

Glenn was arraigned in Greece Town Court on Wednesday and will return to court April 17.

Glenn worked at Park Ridge Living Center for eight years until he was fired last November.

Unity Health Systems released a statement saying: "Unity took the necessary actions to ensure the patient's safety and well-being, investigated and proactively reported the incident, and took the appropriate action with the employee, terminating his employment
with Unity."
