At the beginning of November, a video from the "Orenda" care center for the elderly in Peja, where some nurses abused an elderly person, went viral. The sensitive event sparked a revolt in public opinion.
The elderly woman withdrew from the center to live with her daughter.
The center's license was suspended.
