Two of three former Kane employees, certified nursing assistants have pled guilty to physically abusing a woman in their care a year ago.
They were looking after Thelma Bryant, 94, a Kane resident who used a wheelchair and suffered from dementia.
Charges were dropped against a third employee, but all three women will sign an agreement that they will never work in caring for the elderly in any capacity again.
The accusations against them included stepping on Ms. Bryant's feet, hitting her and bruising her forehead and throwing an orange at her.
Shelly Keene, 35, of West Mifflin pled guilty to simple assault.
Karen Perry, 46, of Homestead, pled guilty to harassment.
Charges were dropped against 30-year-old Shalayla Hatten of the Hill District.
