REM River Bluffs Rochester Complaint Findings for Neglect of Supervision

In a report concluded on October 17, 2013, the Minnesota Department of Health cites REM River Bluffs Rochester for neglect of supervision – resident was sexually assaulted by guest.

It is alleged that neglect occurred when a client was left unsupervised in the client’s room with a guest, and the client was sexually assaulted.

The preponderance of evidence establishes that neglect is substantiated when the facility staff left a female client unsupervised in the client’s apartment while the male classmate visited, and the two clients engaged in sexual activity.

During a weekend day in September 2013, the client had a male classmate visit at the facility from approximately 11:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. (exact time frame unknown and not documented).  Two facility staff permitted the client to visit with the male classmate, alone, in the client’s second floor apartment.  When one of the staff went to check on the client, the client and the male classmate were in the client’s bedroom with the door locked.  The client state that s/he had consensual sex with the classmate during this time because s/he wants to have a baby.  The client was taken for a sexual assault examination.  Forensic samples were collected.  No signs of physical injury were present.
