A former worker at the Homestead of Denison nursing home in Denison, Texas has been jailed after a resident accused the man of sexual assault.
The man is also wanted in Illinois for sexually assaulting a minor. He is being held on $80,000 bail.
There were not many details released in this nursing home abuse case but the 53-year-old man has been charged with two counts of sexual assault.
When most people think of nursing home abuse, images of neglected patients or nursing home workers physically assaulting patients may come to mind. However, sexual nursing home abuse is not at all uncommon and is one of the more disturbing forms of abuse found in care facilities.
If you were sexually assaulted in a nursing home, or if a loved one suffered this abuse, you have the right to pursue legal action and make sure the abuser as well as the nursing home is brought to justice for any negligence on their part.
