WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A Kansas nurse who pleaded guilty to mistreating an adult at an Andover nursing home faces 60 days in jail.

KWCH reports (https://bit.ly/1L7Yn7X ) Geofrey Nyangweso pleaded guilty to mistreating a dependent adult at Victoria Falls Skilled Nursing Home in Andover in 2013. He was sentenced Thursday.

Judge David Ricke also ruled that Nyangweso is no longer allowed to work in any care facility working with patients.

The Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services said earlier it had cited the nursing home for failing to meet certain regulations and failing to investigate some abuse complaints.

A department inspection showed at least two of the 63 residents suffered verbal and physical abuse, including one targeted by at least four staff members and another who had been abused by another resident.
