An administrative law judge upheld the state’s finding that a group home had engaged in maltreatment for failing to monitor a potentially suicidal client closely enough.

People, Inc., which operates Parkway Place, an adult foster care facility in Blaine, was fined $1,000 by the Minnesota Department of Human Services for allowing the client to remain on a second-floor balcony alone in October 2010.
The client, who suffered brain injury in 2008 when he was hit by an SUV, jumped from the balcony and sustained a broken shoulder and a new head injury. He was talked out of jumping off that balcony a month earlier.
The client’s mother warned the home less than two hours before he jumped that he had exhibited suicidal behavior earlier in the day, the findings stated.
