The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) has completed its investigation of abuse concerns at the York Garden, an assisted living facility in Edina, Minnesota. A complaint was filed with the MDH alleging that a client at York Garden was abused by a caretaker and did not receive appropriate care. The MDH investigated the matter and found that the caregiver on at least two occasions spoke to the client in a loud, critical, and derogatory manner. The caregiver repeatedly insulted and demeaned the client who suffers from dementia. The caregiver also failed to escort the client to meals resulting in an unsafe weight loss. The MDH determined that the care giver is responsible for abuse of the facility’s resident. [Case no. HL27800003]
