Buckinghamshire care home worker 'pictured sleeping'
A woman accused of sleeping while on duty at a Buckinghamshire care home has denied 19 charges of neglect.
Henretta Offae, 41, of St Chad's Road, Derby, was working at the Westlands home, Olney, when she is accused of neglecting residents.
The jury at Aylesbury Crown Court was shown a picture of the defendant sleeping in a chair on 17 August 2011.
Many elderly residents that night had been left for hours with no change of incontinence pad, the court heard.
The jury was told that her manager Selena Ballard had received complaints from other members of staff and visited the home at 02:40 BST on 17 August.
According to the manager, when she was woken Ms Offae said: "I hold my hands up, you caught me. What we have done is inexcusable."
The case continues.
