COLD SPRING, Ky., Aug. 30 (UPI) -- A Kentucky boys' home was denied its child-care license after the state removed some boys for being improperly medicated, officials said.

The Campbell Lodge Boys' Home, a 78-acre campus in Cold Spring for boys with behavioral problems, closed in March and will remain closed indefinitely, the Cincinnati Enquirer reported Thursday.

Two investigations by the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services indicated staff improperly dispensed psychotropic medications to residents, children were given incorrect medications and medications were found mixed together and mislabeled, the newspaper said. It added the investigations found the staff consistently failed to provide meals, beds and clean clothes to the boys, and intimidated and humiliated them.
