Garden Court Chateau Cited with Neglect after Client Falls Lack of Assessment and Intervention

MDH Cites Garden Court Chateau after Client Suffers Numerous Falls

In a report from the Minnesota Department of Health it is alleged that a client at Garden Court Chateau was abused when the AP forced a client to take medications against his/her will by straddling him/her, holding his/her head and forcing medication by hand into his/her mouth. The client became agitated and bit the AP.

In addition, it is alleged the facility neglected the same client when the client experienced two major fall incidents with head injury and the staff failed to re-assess the client. The client died eight days after the second serious fall due to a closed head injury.

Failure to Assess or Intervene after Many Falls Leading to MDH Finding of Neglect

Neglect was substantiated. The home care provider failed to complete assessments or implement interventions for the client after multiple falls. Based on a preponderance of the evidence, abuse is also substantiated. The alleged perpetrator (AP) forced the client to take medications against the client’s will.
