Investigation Underway For Alleged Assault On A Patient By Nursing Home Staff

The family of a 68 year old female patient claims she was assaulted by nursing home staff. The nursing home claims she fell out of her bed on more than one occasion resulting in an arm fracture and bruises around her neck. The family had not heard from their mother in two days, so they went to check on her.

They found her motionless in her bed with the neck and arm injuries. "This doesn't just happen to my mom, this happens to moms, grandpas. This happens to people that are disabled and end up in a nursing home," said one of her sons. A state investigation is currently underway. For more, read the story.
