Nightingale Nursing Home, which made the news for mistreating an elderly patient, was on Monday convicted of failing to comply with its licensing conditions.

Video footage of an elderly woman being wheeled into a ward, naked from the waist up, and two female aides flinging her onto a bed, went viral last year.

The home and its two related companies – Greenview Nursing Home and Civic Ambulance Services – were also convicted of other charges.

Nightingale’s director Tan Choo Waoh, 64, on Monday pleaded guilty to 10 of 32 charges of requiring workers to work more than their daily eight-hour limit, and failing to pay them overtime.
