Colorado Springs assisted living center accused of abuse

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - An assisted living center in Colorado Springs has lost its license after state inspectors found evidence of abuse.

State authorities have suspended the license of the Good Day Residential Home, according to reports. State inspectors reported that owner and administrator Carol Houston "slapped" residents and verbally abused residents with incontinence problems.

Three residents had bruises and injuries consistent the physical abuse, the report said. The center's license was suspended Jan. 20.

Good Day Residential Home had five residents when the suspension order was issued. Houston told reporters she plans to appeal the license suspension.
