The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) has completed its investigation of neglect concerns at the Good Samaritan Society – Albert Lea in Albert Lea, Minnesota. A complaint was filed with the Department alleging that the facility’s caretakers did not follow a patient’s physician plan. This resulted in the patient gaining 20 pounds in 15 days. The Department investigated the matter and found that the facility’s electronic administration record did not include the entirety of the physician’s patient care-plan. As a result, the patient did not receive necessary care. The MDH determined that the nursing home is responsible for the neglect of the facility’s resident. (Case no. H5441027]
