Nursing home abuse: Man confesses to abuse after arrest

A 28-year-old nursing facility worker has been accused of abusing a resident of the facility where he was employed. The man has since confessed to the abuse and will face two counts of abusing a vulnerable adult in court. If convicted of the charges, the man could be sentenced to two years in prison. Although this nursing home abuse case did not happen in New Mexico, similar incidents are not uncommon at nursing facilities in the state.
