CALGARY — Three Calgary nursing home workers have been sentenced to 60 days in jail for abusing a 92-year-old man.

In February 2014, Ulrich Wissner told his family about the abuse at Carewest Garrison Green, so his son secretly installed a camera.

It showed three women slapping, flicking water at, and threatening to pour urine on Wissner, who died a month later.

Court heard that Wissner was bedridden, physically frail, and had cancer.

Maria Teresa Dumo, May Casimero, and Angelina Borja all pleaded guilty to assault.

Wissner's family says the senior lived the last months of his life feeling afraid, helpless and angry instead of comfortable and safe.
