Catholic Eldercare on Main in Minneapolis Complaint Findings for Neglect of Supervision

In a report concluded on October 11, 2013, the Minnesota Department of Health cites Catholic Eldercare on Main in Minneapolis for neglect of supervision – resident to resident.

It is alleged that neglect of supervision occurred by staff when Resident #1 pushed Resident #2 causing a pelvic fracture.  It is also alleged that Resident #1 pushed Resident #3 from behind shortly after.

The allegation of neglect is substantiated. The facility failed to provide adequate supervision for Resident #1, which resulted in an incident where Resident #1 pushed two other residents (Resident #2 and Resident #3). Resident #2 experienced increased pain and required increased assistance for cares and ambulation. A pelvic fracture could not be ruled out; however Resident #2 required occupational therapy as a result of the injury. Resident #3 did not sustain an injury from Resident #1.
