A nurse was accused of abuse after she forcefully restrained a difficult elderly patient, which resulted in him screaming out in pain.

Grenida Bravo, who worked as a registered nurse at the University of Alberta Hospital in Edmonton since 2011, was employed on the neuro-geriatric unit as the designated charge nurse.

During the day shift on March 3, 2018, Bravo worked with Mohamed Beltaifa and Rebecca Fairhurst. Fairhurst entered the room of an elderly man, identified as “Mr. D,” who had suffered from a stroke and had language barriers.
