A worker at a Faribault nursing home was fired in June after a resident complained that the employee ate a sandwich intended for her, according to a report made public by the Office of Health Facility Complaints this week.
The resident of Pleasant Manor Inc. told a relative that she complained about an entree served one evening. When she also complained about the sandwich offered as a substitute, a nursing assistant ate it in front of her, the report said.
The worker denied the incident, but Pleasant Manor fired her a week later for “failure to follow facility policies and procedures.” The employee was on probation at the time and had a previous written warning.
Because the nursing home took corrective action, the state issued no orders against it.
