State health department looking into Frederick nursing home

FREDERICK, OK--  The Oklahoma State Health Department  has launched an investigation into a Frederick nursing home.  This after the administration of Winlen Oaks Nursing Home told families over the weekend they'd have to move out their loved ones.

All of the residents have reportedly been moved to new locations.  It appears there were not enough people on staff to care for the residents, after many staffers quit.

Workers and families say they had no idea the facility was closing.
