Sex crimes detectives are investigating the incident, which happened earlier this month at Princeton Place Rehab and Nursing Home in northeaster Albuquerque.
The alleged victim cannot walk or move her legs well, according to ABC. The identity of her and her family was hidden for privacy purposes.
She called her family after the incident distraught and shaken. ABC described the her as “in a panic” after the incident.
