Nursing Home License Potentially Revoked Following Multiple Claims of Physical and Sexual Abuse

The Department of Public Health is working hard to revoke one nursing home’s license. According to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the nursing home’s funding was in “immediate jeopardy” for weeks prior due to allegations of multiple abuse claims. Some of the abuse was both physical and sexual in nature.     

According to reports, one resident at this nursing home sexually abused at least two fellow residents on separate occasions. These alleged victims were mentally compromised and were not able to provide consent. According to nurse’s notes, the alleged sexual abuse occurred in a designated room in the facility known by facility staff as the “man cave.” There was no documentation to support that these residents were ever supervised in this room.
