Edmonson County prosecutor Tim Coleman says they are no longer employed at the facility, which is northeast of Bowling Green.

Coleman said the charges involve multiple victims in a time period that spanned from August 2013 through February.

Jeanne Moore, spokeswoman for Genesis HealthCare, says the company is cooperating with investigators.
