State regulators take control of Minneapolis nursing home
Health Dept. takes control of Mpls. nursing home as care violations mount
October 26, 2021
A Minneapolis nursing home has been taken over by the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) because of nearly 20 care violations and crumbling finances.
Twin City Gardens nursing home, with 31 residents, will be under new management after a Ramsey County judge on Friday granted the department's request to place the facility into involuntary receivership.
"Twin City Gardens' numerous delinquent accounts and lack of supplies constitute an emergency," the Health Department told the court. "Its lack of food and medical supplies will present an immediate and serious threat to the residents' health and safety and creates an emergency situation where residents will not receive adequate care or nutrition."
