WAVERLY, Neb. (AP) - A 49-year-old woman has been charged with assault and abuse of a vulnerable adult, following accusations that she mistreated patients at a southeast Nebraska nursing home.

Barbara Fallon, of Lincoln, is accused of slapping three elderly patients when she worked at Waverly Care Center. Lancaster County Sheriff Terry Wagner says Fallon on May 10 slapped the arms of women ages 79 and 89 to make them let go of a railing and also roughly moved them around. Wagner says Fallon also is accused of slapping a 73-year-old woman about a month ago.

The center says it has terminated Fallon.

A public phone listing for Fallon couldn’t be found. Online court records don’t list the name of her attorney.
