Abuse Allegations Prompt Officials to Revoke License of Assisted Living Facility

The state Department of Health has revoked the license of an assisted living facility this week after determining that the owner and operator was verbally and physically abusive to an elderly resident. The owner has denied the allegations and claims the extensive camera system at the facility will reveal his innocence.

According to documents from the department of health, officials determined there were extensive and serious violations of the state rules of assisted living facilities. The revocation, which is temporary at the moment, required the facility to have each of the residents moved in just 48-hours. A hearing to determine whether to permanently revoke the facility's license has been scheduled for next month. For more, read the story.
