The video shows the caretaker, identified by police as Brenda Floyd, berating and striking the victim in the living room of her Houston home, according to KIAH.
Police said the video was taken around 8 p.m. on New Year’s Day at the patient’s house in the 800 block of Oak Valley Drive.
Floyd can be seen waking the woman, who lets out a terrified-sounding yelp, before smacking her multiple times in the body, according to police.
“I told you to stop feeding that dog that human food,” the caretaker says at one point before slapping the patient in the back of the head. “Do you have another $4,000 to put that dog back in the hospital? Huh?”
