N.H. nurse accused of breaking resident’s fingers in assisted living facility

Nancy A. Waller, 65 of New Boston, faces multiple related charges.

A New Hampshire nurse allegedly broke a resident’s fingers at an assisted living facility, and now is facing multiple related charges.

Nancy A. Waller, 35, of New Boston, is being charged with two counts of abuse of a facility patient, and one count each of second-degree assault, and simple assault, according to the New Hampshire Attorney General in a press release.

Waller is a registered at Rose Meadow Farm, located in New Boston, according to authorities. Back on Dec. 23, Waller allegedly “broke a resident’s fingers as she was prying them off the resident’s call bell.”

“The charges further allege that Ms. Waller then prevented the resident from being examined by outside medical professionals,” the release said.

Waller is to be arraigned in Hillsborough County Superior Court on a to-be-determined date.
