Heather Nicole Berry

Heather Nicole Berry, 37, of Muskogee is charged in Muskogee County District Court with two felonies of abuse by a caretaker in the cases of two patients at a nursing facility who she allegedly neglected and did not tell anyone else that the patients were in need, according to documents filed with the case.

Both victims are elderly.

The police affidavit filed with the case states:

On the above date, time, and location the defendant had neglectfully abused two elderly individuals while they were in her care. She had refused to pick up one that is wheelchair bound when the victim had fallen. The other victim had vomited on herself and could not clean up on her own, but the defendant refused to clean the victim up nor tell anyone else so it could have been cleaned.

A warrant has been issued for Berry’s arrest. The mugshot above is from an earlier arrest.
