The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) has completed its investigation of neglect concerns at the Augustana Health Care Center of Minneapolis, a nursing home in Minneapolis, Minnesota. A complaint was filed with the MDH alleging that neglect occurred when a resident fell and sustained a head injury. The resident was non-ambulatory and required total assistance of two staff members and a mechanical lift for transfers. The MDH investigated the matter and found that, on the day of the fall, the employee left resident unsupervised in the room with the patient’s bed at waist height with no precautionary safety measures in place.
