Georgia police are searching for a nursing home employee accused of sexually assaulting one of the home's residents.

The LaFayette Police Department says they were notified of the reported sexual assault in late October at the Pruitt Health Care Shepherd Hills nursing home on the 800 block of Patterson Road.

During their investigation, officials say the patient reported the assault days before police were notified. 

"The staff of Pruitt Health Care Shepherd Hills failed to report the Incident to Law Enforcement as required," officials said, noting that they only found out thanks to a concerned family member.
