Nursing Home Abuse Cited For Lack Of Reporting

A nursing home was cited for an incorrect response to abuse. A patient accused a staff member of sexual abuse. However, the abuse was never reported to the state. In response, the administration of the nursing home facility banned the staff member from the patient's room.
