Investigators Find Roach and Mouse Infestation at Assisted Living Center

Residents were moved from an assisted living center last week after state officials discovered a mouse and roach infestation at the facility. According to inspection reports, the facility has had problems with mice and cockroaches since 2008.

The facility owner has hired an exterminator as needed to handle the problem at the facility, but officials told him Wednesday that the building required extensive fumigation. All residents had to be transferred to other facilities or discharged home in order to fumigate the building.

Residents will be  required to remain out of the facility until the sanitary issues have been completely resolved. For more, read the story.
