Menagha nursing home cited for violating state, federal regulations

MENAHGA - A new Minnesota Department of Health report states that Menahga's Green Pine Acres nursing home violated state and federal regulations.

An unannounced visit was made to the facility and the report was released in June. It states that a resident "fell out of her wheelchair, causing a skin tear on her right wrist and a cut to her head requiring stitches across her forehead.

"The resident was supposed to be in a reclining chair, but was left in the hallway in a wheelchair," according to the MDH report.

The investigation concluded that neglect did occur at the facility.

Green Pine Acres Administrator Clair Erickson was directed by the Menagha City Council to notify the facility's insurance carrier of the investigation.
