Two former nurses at Rest Haven Nursing Home in Tulsa, Oklahoma have accused the nursing home of being an environment filed with nursing home abuse and neglect.
The nurses say Rest Haven residents were routinely verbally and physically abused. Furthermore, they say the facility was filthy, filled with roaches and rats, and even maggots on residents.
The former employees say they were fired after they reported the abuse to the state.
An undercover news producer corroborated some of the allegations saying the facility was dirty and smelled bad. The news team also found further documented complaints of physical abuse and neglect.
The owner of Rest Haven denies the allegations of abuse and neglect and says the former nurses at the facility had an axe to grind.
Rest Haven has recently closed with the owner saying the nursing home was no longer profitable. The closure was not due to action taken be the state.
