Nursing Home Employees charged

Prosecutors have filed drug-related charges against six employees at a nursing home in Sulphur.
The Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics says the employees are accused of calling in fraudulent prescriptions to pharmacies to obtain painkillers, including hydrocodone.
Bureau spokesman Mark Woodward says there's no evidence any residents were deprived of their medications — only that the prescriptions called in were fraudulent.

Elderly woman assaulted in nursing home break-in

A team of detectives is investigating the alleged indecent assault of a resident at a New South Wales nursing home.
Police say a man indecently assaulted a woman in her late 60s after he forced himself into her unit at an aged-care facility at Jewells, near Newcastle.
They say the woman struggled and screamed and managed to scratch the man's face before neighbours came to her aid.
Police Inspector Sam Crisafulli says the woman is in shock.
"It is disturbing and these sorts of things always are upsetting to police officers and the public. It's a horrible thing to happen at that stage of your life," he said.
Police say the man is around 5 foot 6 inches, unshaven, and smelt strongly of cigarette smoke.
