HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - After investigating reports of sexual abuse, state regulators are ordering the closure of a western Pennsylvania facility that treats children and teenagers diagnosed with mental health conditions.

The state Department of Human Services said Thursday that it received the reports about Glade Run Lutheran Services in Zelienople through its ChildLine hotline. It ordered the facility to close within 30 days.

The department says it found violations including inadequate supervision of the children, failure to report missing children, staff members sleeping during their shifts and insufficient staffing levels.

A Glade Run representative didn’t immediately comment. The 56-bed facility can appeal the department’s decision.
