Minnesota Nursing Home Facilities
Nursing Home Companies
When an accident happens in a nursing home, it’s occasionally the fault of an individual staff member, but more often it’s because of an irresponsible policy put in place by the home’s parent company. The ultimate cause of most injuries and deaths in nursing homes is under-staffing. If an overworked, underpaid nurse’s aid has to provide care to 35 residents in an eight hour shift, she’s bound to make a mistake eventually, and that’s when people get hurt. It’s usually because there simply aren’t enough hours in the day or because staff haven’t been properly trained. It’s expensive for parent companies to train staff and put them on the floor, and many of them try to scrape by with the bare minimum or less to save the extra money. In the state of Minnesota, nursing homes are required to provide a minimum of 2 hours of direct nursing care per resident per day. The companies listed below own many nursing homes and repeatedly implement policies and administrative decisions that result in deficient care in the nursing homes themselves.
