A Fridley nursing home that sent a resident to a clinic appointment in April with an empty oxygen tank, a fever, an infection on her arm and a dirty ulcer on her back was found by the Minnesota Office of Health Facility Complaints to have neglected the resident's health care, according to a report made public last week.
Doctors' orders for the resident of Golden LivingCenter Lynwood included a continuous supply of oxygen and salve and a dressing on the ulcer.
An administrative nurse at the facility told investigators she didn't agree with the order for the wound dressing.
A dressing covering a catheter in her forearm hadn't been removed as directed, and the incision became infected.
The resident was admitted to hospital with sepsis.
