Resident Coerced into Sexual Act by Whittier Place
In a report from the MDH, it was alleged that a AP (alleged perpetrator) from Whittier Place abused a resident when the AP coerced and then forced a resident to engage in sexual acts, under threat of violence.
The Minnesota Department of Health determined abuse was substantiated. The AP was responsible for the maltreatment. The AP sought out the resident outside of work, coerced her to engage in sexual acts, and then threatened harm if she told anyone. The investigation identified evidence which corroborated the resident’s account of events.
The investigator conducted interviews with facility staff members, including administrative staff, nursing staff, and unlicensed staff. The investigator contacted law enforcement. The investigation included review of medical records, the resident’s phone and text logs, facility documents, policies, and procedures related to code of conduct, and maltreatment of vulnerable adults.
