    A "rough" nurturing colleague put a sheet over a dementia patient's head and let her know she was 'the dead one' throughout a crusade of misdeeds, a court caught yesterday. Akousa Sakyiwaa, 38, had recently nudged 87-year-old Joan Mussett's breasts and let her know, 'i'm junior and my bosoms are superior to yours', it is charged. The point when Miss Mussett grumbled, Sakyiwaa pulled the bunk dress over the elderly lady's head and apparently said: 'see, you're the dead one.' John Mcnally, indicting, said the health awareness colleague showed up 'to have the trust to mocking the thought that anything might befall her', and blamed her for acting 'towards patients not as individuals yet as things, there to trouble her'. He included: 'the legitimate part of a carer was clearly an outsider to her.' Sakyiwaa is one of three carers blamed for mishandling dementia patients at Whipps Cross Hospital in Leytonstone, east London. Together with Annette Jackson, 33, and Sharmila Gunda, 36, Sakyiwaa is accused of 14 counts of total disregard and medication abuse and two counts of physical abuse as a detriment to 11 patients in their time of need. The patients they treated on the now-shut Beech Ward were depicted to the jury at Snaresbrook Crown Court as "powerless" and "elderly" women, a large portion of whom advanced stages of dementia.

    Mr Mcnally depicted the occurrence in which Sakyiwaa initially "wobbled" her patient's breasts before contrasting them with her own particular and taunted her by wrapping her in a mattress sheet when she griped. In an additional episode, Mr Mcnally told how Sakyiwaa told the "glib" and "joyful" Miss Mussett to 'shut up' in light of the fact that she 'talked too much'. At the time she pressed on to talk, Sakyiwaa got to her patient's mouth and held it physically close. Sakyiwaa is likewise accused of abusing Louise Hodges, 92, calling her "sluggish" for not moving herself to the latrine then afterward slapping her bottom when adapting her dirtied bunk dress as discipline. The point when Miss Hodges griped to her on a different event, maxim 'you practically gagged me', Sakyiwaa's reaction was, 'yeah, I might as well have.' Jackson is accused of five strikes of medicine abuse of her patients, incorporating waking patient Kathleen Cavannagh by yelling 'wakey, wakey, Grandma' and smacking her in the side of her head with an uncomfortable object.The stunning conduct of the three ladies became known when they were accounted for by a newbie medical attendant who was dismayed via what she saw on the ward throughout an eight-week arrangement in spring 2012, the court listened to.
