NeglectSt. John Lutheran Home

Springfield, Minnesota Nursing Home Neglects Resident

By September 26, 2012 No Comments

The Minnesota Department of Health has determined that the St. John Lutheran Home in Springfield, MN, is responsible for neglect of a resident.  A complaint was filed with the Department alleging that a resident was not reassessed for possible injuries after a fall although she complained of increased pain and increased difficulty with transfers. As a result, there was a delay in the resident being sent to the hospital for medical evaluation. The Department investigated the matter and found that the resident was neglected when she was not reassessed following a fall, and experienced pain throughout the day shift. On the evening shift, the resident was sent to the emergency room, and was diagnosed with a femur fracture.  [Report H5407006, dated July 30, 2012]
