Kenyon Sunset Home Cited After Resident Developed Severe Wounds

In a report concluded on May 26, 2015, the Minnesota Department of Health cites Kenyon Sunset alleging that a resident was neglected when staff failed to monitor the resident after having surgery and the resident developed severe wounds, and sepsis requiring hospitalization, and the need for further surgery for wounds and pressure ulcers.

Based on a preponderance of the evidence, neglect occurred when the facility staff failed to monitor and respond to the resident’s condition.  Staff members delayed contacting the resident’s physician related to a condition change eventually resulting in hospitalization.  The resident later died at the hospital.

Pressure injury is usually a preventable form of neglect.  It is important that people at risk of skin break down are carefully monitored for changes in their condition.
