Disturbing images have appeared of a caregiver who hit an elderly patient terrified with a shoe before dragging him to the bed and tearing off his shirt.
A caregiver, aged 35, allegedly entered several times in a room of an 82-year-old patient in a nursing home in Seaforth, on the beaches of North Sydney, between August 26 and 28.
The CCTV images from inside the elderly care facility show the patient cowering in fear while the employee repeatedly hit him with the shoe and forced him to undress.

A caregiver, aged 35, allegedly entered the 82-year-old patient's room in a nursing home in Seaforth, on the beaches of North Sydney, several times between August 26 and 28.
Police arrested the employee at a house in Wheeler Heights just before 2:00 pm Wednesday and took him to the Manly Police Station.
He was charged with two counts of common assault and the use of an offensive weapon with the intent to commit an incriminating offense.
Superintendent David Darcy of the Northern Beaches Police Area Command said that elder abuse can take many forms, from physical to psychological, emotional or financial.
"These vulnerable people need communities to help be their voice," said Superintendent Darcy.
"To see an old man treated in this way is shameful."
The man received conditional bail and will appear before the local court in Manly on September 11.
