CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia officials say there have been more than 30 complaints of sexual abuse, neglect and other issues against a nursing company from 2012 to 2016.

The Charleston Gazette-Mail reports (https://bit.ly/2nW6jJM ) the complaints were confirmed by the West Virginia Office of Health Facility Licensure and Certification against ResCare, which often provides care for people with physical and mental disabilities.

Kristen Trenaman, the director of marketing communications for ResCare Inc., says the company cannot address individual complaints because of privacy concerns. However, she says the company’s goal is to eliminate incidents related to safety and impropriety.

Complaints against the company were publicized after the death of a 13-year-old client in March. Jeremy Bush died when he crashed a Dodge Caravan taken from a ResCare children’s facility in Charleston.
