Minnesota Assisted Facilities Living Information
Minnesota assisted living and nursing home abuse and neglect are important issues to senior citizens and their families. Nursing home neglect can often be attributed to lack of administrative policies and procedures, poorly trained staff and inadequate staffing. Vulnerable adults and the elderly should not be subjected to the following forms of neglect: malnutrition, dehydration, pressure ulcers, falls, medication errors, lack of infection control and injuries caused from lack of supervision.
To research the licensure or registration of an assisted living or housing with services provider see the MDH website. You can check current home care provider survey results including assisted living providers.
A complaint can be filed with the Minnesota Department of Health, Office of Health Facility Complaints (OHFC). You can view past complaints and substantiated deficiencies in care and treatment provided to residents at the OHFC website.
