Two teenagers working at a nursing home were recently charged with abusing residents in a Minnesota nursing home and four others for failing to report the incidents. They were charged with poking, taunting and groping vulnerable residents according to the article in the Grand Forks Herald. Sadly, it was noted:
The Minnesota Department of Health released a report in August showing that 15 residents with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia disorders were abused at the facility between Jan. 1 and May 1.
