WHNT reported another nursing home employee accused of sexually assaulting a nursing home resident at Mitchell-Hollingsworth nursing home. Zack Reeves, a nursing home aide has been arrested and charged with sodomizing a male nursing home resident. The 21-year-old was arrested following a week-long investigation into possible abuse on November 2nd.
Police say a co-worker witnessed an incident and immediately notified authorities. Florence police say Mitchell-Hollingsworth is playing a crucial role in the on-going investigation by speaking with other residents. “We are kind of letting them lead that part of it since they know their patients. We don’t want to cause any undue stress or trauma to any of the patients,” said Sgt. Greg Cobb with Florence Police.
