Assisted Living Facility Rape; Both the Accused and the Victim are Residents of the Facility

A southern assisted living facility may now face a state investigation after the police arrested a 54 year old man who resides at the facility for nursing home attempted rape of 89 year old resident of the facility. Police records show 273 police calls from the facility over the last two years, resulting in 30 crime reports. This incident of nursing home abuse shows the dangers that fellow nursing home residents can pose each other. Often, nursing homes do not screen incoming residents for previous crimes and criminal backgrounds. Furthermore, this story shows that it is not always nursing home staff that are accused of nursing home abuse and neglect; residents are often the source of nursing home sexual abuse.
