Hickory, NC - A recently released report says a man in a nursing home was physically and verbally abused and his family said they were never notified. The state report found six physical and verbal altercations dating back to March. The nursing home couldn’t provide the state with the paperwork and loved ones said they found out by questioning bruises. Those bruises were on 84-year-old Charles Keller's neck, face, arms and wrist. His family said those injuries were inflicted on Keller since he entered the Brian Center Health and Rehabilitation nursing home four months ago.
