Two female health care workers in Florida have been arrested after allegedly recording themselves abusing an elderly patient with dementia and streaming the footage live on Snapchat. Jada Ari’ana Harris and Shy’Tiona J. Bishop were arrested last week and each charged with one count of video voyeurism and abuse and neglect of an elderly or disabled adult, according to court records reviewed by Law&Crime show.

Harris, 18, was also charged with one count of intercepting or disclosing wired communications.

“They actually uploaded it to a live streaming platform so their friends could watch it, laugh it off, as they laughed at this elderly person in his condition,” Sheriff Wayne Ivey said in a video posted on the office’s Facebook page.

According to a sworn affidavit of probable cause, Harris and Bishop were caring for a patient on April 3 at Market Street Memory Care in Melbourne, located about 55 miles southeast of Orlando. At around 9:46 p.m., Harris positioned her cell phone on the bathroom sink to record him and Bishop taking care of the victim and livestreamed to her Snapchat account under the username “Pr3ttyassjadaa “, according to the police.

The live stream was captured by an anonymous citizen and handed over to police in four separate videos.

The first video reportedly shows Harris holding an adult diaper and Bishop holding a blanket as the victim can be heard shouting “No”.

“Harris says ‘this is so embarrassing’ and asks Bishop to ‘take the live’. Bishop grabs the cell phone and says ‘everyone is laughing’ and focuses the camera on Harris and [the victim]“, says the affidavit. [The victim] using both hands, she grabs Harris’ right arm and constantly screams, as Harris tries to break free from her grip. In the background, you can hear Bishop laughing at the incident.

In the second clip, taken about a minute later, Harris allegedly picked up the cell phone and said, “This is so embarrassing, I’m sorry y’all, she’s embarrassing,” in reference to the victim, which one can still hear screaming at the two healthcare workers. As the victim exits the bathroom, she calls one of the workers a “son of ab—-,” police wrote. Harris then allegedly laughed and said to the camera, “Here she is…watch her p—— piss.”
