Protection and Advocacy finds problems continue at Lexington group home for disabled men
Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Sunday, May 4, 2014 12:03 PM EDT
A new report says Adult Protective Services has not properly investigated abuse allegations at a Lexington group home for disabled men.
The home consists of three buildings, one of which is overseen by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. Courts have found that the remainder of the home is not required to be regulated or licensed by the state.
An investigation two decades ago found "filthy mattresses, insect infestation, soiled rooms and physical plant deterioration."
The report by Protection and Advocacy has found that some of the same problems persist.
