In a report from the Minnesota Department of Health it is alleged that a client at Sanctuary of West St. Paul was neglected when the facility did not obtain her INR levels for 2 months. The client was hospitalized with internal bleeding.
Failure to Sanctuary West St. Paul
Neglect was substantiated. The facility was responsible for the maltreatment because the facility had no system to track when critical laboratory tests were due or had been missed, as a result, the client’s INR was not checked when ordered. This contributed to an incident where the client was hospitalized for internal bleeding.
