NOBLE, Okla. (AP) -- More than 40 residents of a Cleveland County nursing home are being relocated after numerous violations prompted regulators to shut down the facility.
Among the violations at the Noble Residential Care Home were rodent droppings, urine on kitchen plates and bowls and cockroaches crawling on a resident's clothes and beds.
Agency inspections of the home found widespread infestation by rodents and insects.
The home was cited for numerous health and safety violations that threatened residents' welfare.
Repeated attempts to reach representatives of the Noble Residential Care Home were unsuccessful.
All of the home's 42 residents have been moved out.
Health officials say some residents had to be moved more than 100 miles away because of a shortage of beds in central Oklahoma.
