Resident v Resident Physical Abuse at Catholic Eldercare on Main in Minneapolis
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.
