The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) has completed its investigation of neglect concerns at the Gil-Mor Manor Nursing Home in Morgan, Minnesota. A complaint was filed with the Minnesota Department of Health alleging that neglect occurred when staff failed to implement physician’s orders for insulin administration and the resident was admitted to the hospital for diabetic ketoacidosis. The Minnesota Department of Health investigated the matter and found that the allegation of neglect is substantiated because the facility had a system in place to double check physician orders, and two staff incorrectly followed facility protocol. The transcription error went unnoticed by facility staff over a two day period. The MDH determined that the Gil-Mor Manor is responsible for neglect of the facility’s resident. [Case no. H5594012]
