Nursing Home Rape Under Investigation

A nursing home is taking steps to identify a potential rapist among its staff after an incident with a patient by resubmitting background checks on its staff and cancelling all shifts for male employees. Police were alerted to an alleged rape the morning after the incident occurred. The victim was taken to the emergency room for treatment.
