Seven arrested for suspected abuse at care facility

Chiavari, December 18 - Police from the northern city of Chiavari on Tuesday arrested seven nurses suspected of violence and mistreatment of mentally and physically disabled residents in the facility where they were employed. Investigators last October installed hidden surveillance cameras following complaints into the possible abuse of handicapped adults and minors living in the state-funded 'Cedri di Ne' nursing home in the town of Valfontanabuona. Seven nurses and staff were filmed psychologically and physically abusing residents, some with severe disturbances, repeatedly. The facility's managers said they were unaware of any mistreatment.
