A Tulsa nursing home is the focus of an abuse investigation. Tulsa Police, the Oklahoma Attorney General's Office, and the state Department of Health are investing an abuse case at the Green Park Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.
Authorities say the victim, who is blind and mentally disabled, suffered second degree burns to his torso, legs and genitals, in a scalding hot shower at the nursing home.
