A Dayton, Ohio, woman was indicted by a Montgomery County grand jury on Monday on felony charges of patient abuse.

Norma Black, 70, was an employee at the Arbors at Dayton Subacute and Rehabilitation Center when she abused a patient by smacking him, a fourth-degree felony. Black was issued a summons to appear in court, and she is scheduled to be arraigned on May 28. The abuse allegedly occurred during March 2012. Black was an activity assistant at the facility from 2007 until March 23, 2012, according to whiotv.com.

Wes Ramsey, administrator at Arbors at Dayton, says his company has zero tolerance for employee abuse or neglect, and said in a statement that “if an allegation of misconduct is made, we conduct a thorough internal investigation. This individual’s employment was suspended during our investigation and her employment was terminated. All appropriate licensing agencies were notified as well,” whiotv.com reports.
