Male Nurse Arrested For Raping 64-Year-Old Nursing Home Patient

An employee at a Bronx nursing home was arrested early this morning after he allegedly raped a 64-year-old patient.

The employee of the Manhattanville Health Care Center, on West 231st Street in Kingsbridge, spotted Nanic Aidasani on top of a disabled 64-year-old female patient. Officials told reporters that staff memebers held Aidasani until police arrived.

The victim is said to have dementia and being unable to talk. Her children are horrified and devastated.

The victim’s 3 children received a call at 4am from the nursing home. The children were in immediate shock.

The NYPD is working on warrant and working on getting this rape kit done. The daughter took her mother to Presbyterian Hospital for a rape kit exam. Doctors told her that because her mother cannot speak, they cannot perform the exam without court approval.

The nursing home’s administrator said, “Manhattanville Health Care Center contacted the police department and the Department of Health to report an alleged sexual abuse complaint. Our residents are our number one priority and we will continue to assist authorities in their ongoing investigation.”

Aidasani, 42, was changed with rape.

Dear friends and clients,

In furtherance of our firms culture of commitment to always act with compassion, concern and commitment to our clients, community and colleagues, we have been taking precautions to ensure that we are still fulfilling our ethical and moral obligations while prioritizing health, wellness and safety of all we can. 

As you know, the COVID-19 pandemic has introduced changes to many lives and businesses in our communities, and around the world. We, much like our neighbors and friends, have been taking precautions to ensure that we are still fulfilling our ethical and moral obligation to our clients, while also prioritizing the health, wellness and safety of our employees.

Until further notice, our offices will be closed to the public to encourage social distancing and to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Our team is still hard at work, many from home, and you may still call, email, live chat or video conference us if you or a loved one is seeking legal assistance. As the first law firm to offer our clients secure online access to their case file more than a decade ago, we have always been believers in using technology to make life easier and information more accessible. In these present times it has been a smooth transition for us to continue to offer our clients the same seamless and thorough service that you deserve and are accustomed to.

This pandemic is unlike anything any of us have faced in our lifetimes, and while we can continue to emotionally support one another through it all, staying home and keeping your distance is vital to the health and wellness of our communities. It does not feel good to break routines, cancel events and retreat from our normal, day-to-day socializing, but let us remember that, in times of strife, prior generations were asked to go to war and we are simply being asked to stay home. Your isolation equals more lives saved, and more time for medical providers to prepare for the treatment of patients battling COVID-19.

When the dust settles, we will join together with a greater appreciation for our lives, local businesses, loved ones and health. Until then, we will continue to offer guidance from a safe distance.

Very truly yours,

Andrew G. Finkelstein and the staff of Jacoby & Meyers, LLP
