In a report from the MDH, it was alleged that the Charter House neglect a resident when they failed to assess the resident throughout her shift after the resident experienced a change in his condition. The resident was found deceased in his bed at the end of her shift.
Resident Perished Under Care at Charter House
The Minnesota Department of Health determined neglect was substantiated. The AP was responsible for the maltreatment. The AP was told during the shift change report the resident had severly low oxygen saturation reading (79%) and was placed on oxygen, yet the AP never assessed the resident during her shift and never called the on-call provider to update them on the resident’s change in condition.
The investigator conducted interviews with facility staff members, including administrative staff, nursing staff, and unlicensed staff. The resident’s providers were interviewed. The AP was interviewed. The investigation included review of the resident’s records, and facility records, including their policies and procedures. Documents were reviewed from a previous compliance investigation.
