Claims of sex abuse against Arvin nursing facility

A lawsuit has been filed against an Arvin nursing home, with claims that a patient was sexually abused.

Family members of the patient at Evergreen Nursing Home were told by doctors they believe the woman was sexually assaulted before she was taken into the hospital and bleeding profusely. Police were notified, and an investigation was launched.

The claimants say the facility did not handle the incident appropriately and did not report it immediately.
