A former nursing assistant has pleaded guilty to one count of abuse of a vulnerable adult for slapping a resident at Millennium Health and Rehabilitation Center at Liberty Heights in Northwest Baltimore, the Maryland Attorney General's office announced yesterday.

Polla Darlene Bagwell, 41, of the 3400 block of Reisterstown Road slapped a 66-year-old man when he pulled away from her while she was assisting him, according to Attorney General J. Joseph Curran Jr.

Bagwell pleaded guilty Thursday and city District Judge Norman E. Johnson Jr. ordered her to serve 12 months of unsupervised probation, perform 50 hours of community service and take no part in hands-on care at the nursing home for one year.
