In fact, a nursing home resident was recently arrested after allegations arose that he raped and abused another patient at the facility.
19 Action News reports that on Sunday, January 11, a 57-year-old patient at Heartland of Mt. Airy on 2550 Banning Road in Springfield Township, Ohio, reported that her male roommate attacked her.
