This story is just truly horrific. An 89-year-old woman in the early stages of dementia was raped by the man assigned to care for her in her nursing home. The truly awful part (though it's all awful) is what happened next. While her claims were investigated, she was locked in a psych ward for three days while administrators tried to downplay the crime. Thankfully the police, summoned by the victim's fraught daughter, had no time for their deception.
The way the nursing home lied, manipulated, and tried to cover up the rape was appalling. Administrators called the victim a "flirt" and implied that the whole ordeal was something she had consented to. Truly outrageous. Even more so because the man responsible for assaulting her CONFESSED to doing just that! Even in light of this confession, the nursing home still did everything it could to save its own neck at the cost of the well-being of one of its residents.
