Crystal Care Center’s 62 Violations One of Minnesota’s 10 Worst

By December 19, 2012 No Comments

Thanks to a recent Star Tribune report, we have new nursing home violation statistics that prove we still have a problem in many of our local facilities. Crystal Care Center was listed by reporter Jane Friedmann as one of the 10 most-cited homes between June 1, 2009 and Aug. 31, 2012.

Crystal Care Center committed 62 violations during that 15-month period, including the following (as reported by the Star Tribune):

  • Failure to ensure a grab-bar met requirements
  • Failure to develop care plans for all residents
  • Failure to take an incontinent resident to the toilet on schedule
  • Failure to provide proper bed-sore treatment
  • Failure to date-mark opened medication and food
  • Failure to keep emergency call lights in working order

Crystal Care Center has 130 Medicare-certified beds and is operated by Volunteers of America.  The facility received an Overall Star Rating of only 2 out of 5 stars, and only 1 of 5 stars for its Health Inspection Rating.
