HERMISTON, Ore. (AP) — An adult foster home in Hermiston, Oregon, known as Christy's Loving Care has been shut down by the state after a resident's broken leg sparked suspicions of abuse.

The East Oregonian reports that the home, which was licensed for five beds, had its license suspended on May 15 and all residents were moved to new facilities. Christy Sinatra, a spokeswoman for the Department of Human Services, said the licensee has not appealed the suspension.

According to the notice of suspension posted by DHS, the facility closure was prompted by an incident on March 14 in which a resident broke their leg.

Hermiston Police Chief Jason Edmiston confirmed that HPD officers responded. He said his department's report had been forwarded to the Umatilla County District Attorney's office for review.
