Minnesota Elder Abuse and Neglect
Nursing homes across Minnesota
have an obligation to comply with minimum care standards designed to promote quality of care and reduce abuse and neglect
which established by state
and federal regulations
. Many times the explanation for injuries occurring to residents of Minnesota nursing homes, assisted living and other types of elder care facilities is related to a corporate organization which is focused on maximizing profits at the expense of resident safety. Many of the incidents of abuse and neglect
resulting in serious injury or death could have been prevented with increased numbers of attentive and well qualified staff, or through the use of properly functioning and maintained nursing home equipment. An understaffed facility using antiquated or poorly maintained medical equipment such as: patient lifts
, beds, and wheelchairs is likely to have care issues as a result.

and federal requirements for long term care facilities
, mandate that a nursing home must have on duty at all times a sufficient number of qualified nursing personnel, including registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, and nursing assistants to meet the needs of the residents at all nurses' stations, on all floors, and in all buildings if more than one building is involved. This includes relief duty, weekends, and vacation replacements.
