State Investigators Find Nursing Home Aide Sexually Abused Resident

State investigators have concluded that an aide at one nursing home sexually assaulted a female resident twice in one evening. The facility contests the allegations, claiming that the resident is not "credible." 

The resident, who is in her mid-50's, has been diagnosed with multiple mental disorders including schizophrenia. The nursing home administrator also said the woman has made multiple similar unfounded allegations in the past. However, investigators found that the woman did not have a history of sexual abuse allegations at the facility.

Investigators also found that the aide had been disqualified from working directly with patients but continued to work at skilled nursing facilities because a staffing agency continued to schedule him for work.  According to the resident, the aide sexually assaulted her twice while he was showering her.
