Financial Exploitation by Staff at Sunrise Assisted Living Edina Minnesota

Sunrise Assisted Living Edina Complaint Findings for Exploitation

In a report concluded on April 29, 2013, the Minnesota Department of Health cites Sunrise Assisted Living Edina for exploitation by staff.

It is alleged that financial exploitation occurred when the alleged perpetrator (AP) took ATM card and used it to withdraw $1,100.00 cash and pay two parking tickets without the client’s permission.

Based on a preponderance of the evidence, financial exploitation is substantiated in connection with the theft of a client’s credit card/debit card information by the AP.  The AP used the information to pay a parking ticket.  The client’s bank statement identified the AP by name related to the payment of the AP’s parking ticket and indicated the client’s credit care information was used to pay the parking ticket.  The client’s family member contacted the county and verified that the client’s credit care information was used online to pay the AP’s parking ticket.  There was not sufficient evidence (the AP was not identified) on the bank statement to prove that the AP used the client’s credit card information online to pay another parking ticket on a different day.  In addition, there was not sufficient evidence to prove that the AP actually stole the client’s credit card and used the card to make several unauthorized purchases/charges at several stores.  The AP’s name or signature was not present on the bank statement related to the purchases/charges at several stores.
