The Anoka Rehab & Living Center has 3 substantiated claims of abuse or neglect since 2013.
In a report concluded in March 2018, a facility staff member stole narcotic medication intended for a resident for his or her personal use. Without access to proper pain medications, nursing home and other care facility residents’ pain can be unbearable.
In March of 2014, a claim of neglect was substantiated. A resident of the facility was found with his or her head trapped between the mattress and a grab bar. This is a serious concern as bed rail asphyxiation where the head becomes trapped between the mattress and the rail cutting of air flow could have occurred in this situation.
In June 2013, a resident was not given his or her blood-thinning medication for 17 days. This lead to blood clots forming in the resident’s legs and required three corrective surgeries to restore proper circulation.
