Crystal Care Center Crystal Complaint Findings for Neglect – Choking
In a report concluded on November 8, 2013, the Minnesota Department of Health cites Crystal Care Center Crystal for neglect of supervision.
It is alleged that neglect occurred when a resident consumed other resident’s food in the dining room and choked.
Based on a preponderance of evidence, the allegation of neglect is substantiated. The facility was aware that the resident had behaviors of eating food off of other resident’s plates prior to his/her choking. The facility failed to provide appropriate supervision for this resident knowing that s/he was sitting next to another resident with a different textured diet.
For more information from the Minnesota Department of Health, Office of Health Facility Complaints concerning nursing homes, assisted living and other elder care providers view resolved complaints at the MDH website.
