Nursing home abuse: 86-year-old hospitalized after being abused at Solidago Health and Rehabilitation in Texas City, video shows

TEXAS CITY, Texas– A family only speaks to us Sister station in Houston after her grandfather was caught on camera molesting him by staff at a Texas City nursing facility.

The alleged incident happened around 5 p.m. Sunday night at Solidago Health and Rehabilitation.

The man’s granddaughter, who wishes to remain anonymous for fear of retaliation, said the facility called her family to let them know the 86-year-old had fallen out of bed.

That’s not what she saw when she viewed video from a camera her family had installed in his room.

She said he actually slipped out of his bed and was then mauled by two workers at the facility.

“I was angry for a second. I had time to cool off and I was just speechless,” she said. “I know it happens, but I didn’t think it would happen to my grandfather.”

She added that the family installed a camera in his room due to previous incidents with Solidago Health and Rehabilitation staff.

The facility’s name was previously The Resort at Texas City, but administrators told Eyewitness News it has been known as Solidago Health and Rehabilitation for a year.

They sent ABC13 the following statement in response to the video:

“The health and safety of our residents remains our top priority. Our thoughts are with the resident and family. Solidago Health and Rehabilitation enforces strict policies that prohibit patient abuse. Prompt action has been taken to ensure the safety of our residents. Abuse policies will be reported to the appropriate authorities and legal authorities and the facility is working closely with those authorities.”

The man’s family said they filed a police report with the Texas City Police Department. It is not known at this time whether charges will be filed.

The grandfather at the center of this video is still hospitalized with black eyes and other injuries, and his family said his time at Solidago was over after Sunday’s incident.

“He’s being moved,” said his granddaughter.
