Virginia police investigating assisted-living abuse case
Virginia, Minn. (AP) — A criminal investigation is under way after state health officials released a report about abuse at an assisted living facility on Minnesota's Iron Range.
Virginia Police Chief Dana Waldron said Thursday that police are looking at the report by the state Office of Health Facility Complaints.
According to the 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 Edgewood Vista in Virginia.
