Nursing Home Under Investigation For Patient Abuse By Employee

A nursing home is under investigation due to allegations regarding patient abuse. A nursing home employee is accused of verbally and physically abusing a patient, as well as using racial slurs. The nursing home is denying the allegations, saying the claims cannot be substantiated.

However, an anonymous whistleblower says otherwise. "I'm not hallucinating. I know what I heard," said the whistleblower. "Someone is lying. It's not me. I have no reason to lie. I'm not gaining anything. She has been told that she was going to get the black slapped off her. She has been called n*****."

"I thank God for the whistleblower. She is brave and courageous," said the patient’s sister. "This is not only about my sister. This is about the other residents in there. What about the ones that don't have families to check on them?" For more, read the story.
