WCCO reported that a Minnesota nursing home was cited for four deficiencies of federal nursing care standards.  A report says the department cited the Good Samaritan Society’s Bethany home in December 2008.  A Minnesota Health Department investigation found poor supervision at a Brainerd nursing home allowed workers to allegedly mistreat residents.

The report says in a two-month period in late 2008, workers allegedly told residents to relieve themselves in their briefs and talked in a derogatory manner to residents.  The investigation focused on one worker who eventually was fired, but that workers indicated as many as 20 others also committed similar acts.

Management has a duty to properly hire and train staff and supervise them.  How could the Administrator and DON not know what was going on?
