Two nurses’ aides on Long Island are charged with unlawful surveillance for photographing nursing home patients without their consent.

Authorities say 25-year old David Rover and 23-year-old Thomas Mocera took pictures of 11 residents of three different Suffolk county nursing homes.

The pictures showed bedsores and other disturbing images.

Rover faces additional charges of falsifying documents for filing a false unemployment claim.
