MDH Cites Shiloh Assisted Living
Failed to Respond to Client’s Change in Condition
In a report from the Minnesota Department of Health it is alleged that a client at Shiloh Assisted Living was neglected when facility staff failed to provide CPR (cardio-pulmonary resuscitation).
Neglect Finding Due to Failure to Provide CPR to Client at Shiloh Assisted Living
Neglect was substantiated. The facility was responsible for maltreatment. The facility informed clients in the contracted service plan that CPR was not a service provided by the facility. However, the staff failed to follow the facility’s emergency protocol when the client had difficulty breathing.
The failure to honor a Physician Ordered Life Sustaining Order (POLST) can lead to a person in urgent critical care not receiving the medical intervention and attempt to safe their life they wished for in the event they were ever in that situation.
Resident Medication Error
In a recent report by the MDH there was a finding of substantiated neglect after a medication error.
