Massachusetts nursing home resident, 76, dies after assault by roommate, 83, officials say
A daughter of one of the patients at the nursing home told WCVB her father was traumatized by the aftermath of the incident.
“[The patients] all got to see the body rolled out,” Erika Wallace said. “I don’t know why they wouldn’t keep them in their rooms but my dad got to see it, so he’s going through having to see the crushed skull. It was just really traumatic.”
Oxford Rehabilitation said in a statement that nursing home staff “acted quickly and appropriately in the matter” and are cooperating with authorities.
