A criminal investigation is under way after state health officials released a report about elder abuse at a nursing home. According to the nursing home abuse report, three nursing aides pinched, slapped and threw rubber balls at a resident with Alzheimer’s disease and told another resident to “shut up” while calling him names. The employees no longer work at the nursing home after the elderly abuse. Physical abuse has become all too commonplace at nursing homes throughout the country.
