Three workers have been suspended from the Lethbridge care home at the centre of a health scandal.
On Monday, Friends of Medicare claimed a woman living in the dementia unit of St. Therese Villa had been bitten on the face by mice.
Owners, Covenant Health, responded a day later saying the woman’s face wounds were not from mice, but from an unrelated viral infection.
Mark Wells, a spokesperson with Alberta Union of Provincial Employees, said three employees were suspended with pay.
He said the workers will remain off the job until an investigation can take place.
