MDH Cites Garden House Estates after Administering Wrong Dose of Medication to Client

In a report from the Minnesota Department of Health it is alleged that facility staff at Garden House Estates in Duluth administered incorrect doses of medication resulting in hospitalization.

Medication Error at Garden House Estates

Neglect was substantiated. The client went seven days without receiving a high risk medication, Coumadin (a blood thinner). The home care provider had no licensed nursing coverage and therefore missed implementing the Coumadin order. The client received emergency treatment, and experienced stress and financial burden, as a result of the home care provider’s error.
