A JAPANESE court has jailed a hospital worker for three years for tearing off the toenails of elderly patients at a hospital to relieve her own frustration.
“It has not been even three years since her previous prison term ended, and she repeated the offence.”
In 2006, Sato was sentenced to three years and eight months in jail after tearing off a total of 49 finger and toenails of six patients at another hospital.
The 38-year-old woman was arrested for her second crime in August, a few weeks after she began working at Mouri Hospital in Kyoto.
The head of the hospital said she did not reveal her criminal record in her resume and had lied about her career
