A nursing home aide has been arraigned on multiple charges for allegedly hitting and pushing a nursing home resident, The Attorney General’s Office announced Tuesday.

36-year-olf Samantha Grover was arraigned in Syracuse City Court for first-degree falsifying business records, first-degree endangering the welfare of an incompetent or physically disabled person, felonies, and willful violation of health laws, a misdemeanor.

Grover allegedly hit a male resident in the face and pushed him, causing him to trip and fall and hit his shoulder on Oct. 17, 2015 at James Square Health and Rehabilitation Centre.

The resident then “suffered from impingement syndrome on the right shoulder with a rotator cuff strain.”

Officials say Grover allegedly made a false statement to the facility about the incident.

She will appear again in court on April 12.
