    I would be very wary of placing a loved one in this facility. Over and above the fact that from a dietary perspective their food is dumbed down, and much of it not up to nutritional and clean food standards, the biggest concern here is that they regularly serve the meals outside the food safe temp zone. I worked in this facility until about one year ago. During my attempts to correct this situation from within, I was labeled a trouble maker and a boat-rocker. We were required by law to log the food temperatures before serving. When I would enter the correct but out of safety zone temps of the meals, the response was "What would the State say if they saw your entries?" I took this as I was supposed to enter fake temperature readings that were within safety temp zones. I was soon terminated for not being a part of this deceit. Before you make assumptions that this is written from the perspective of a disgruntled employee, it should be said that I waited a whole year before writing this review. In truth, being extracted from this institution was one of the best things to happen to me from a career standpoint. I have since been haunted by what is/was happening, and felt I had to speak out for the safety of the residents. To be fair, I am not sure if the same culinary leadership is still in place at this facility. I pray that there is now new leadership in place. If not, I believe that Minnesota State food and facility inspectors should visit this institution outside of their annually scheduled inspections to uncover actual unperformed practices.

    My mother was in the Benedictine Rehab center and was screened and accepted into the assisted living portion of the health center. We moved her things into her room on Saturday with a move into the facility communicated for Thursday of the next week. On Tuesday, they communicated that they had changed their minds and she should move into their memory care facility. This was after we went through the expense and time of moving her things. My sister visited the memory care facility and it smelled like feces and urine. They then stated we were going to have to pay $300 per day unless we moved her out of rehab immediately. We found another assisted living place that screened my mother and she is thriving in that facility. But we are billed $1200 for their mistake, plus our time and u-haul expense. During our visits to move her things, no help was seen in the hallways. During our move out, one lady was looking for help finding the dining room. Luckily we were there to help her because nobody from the facility was looking out for her.

Compare The Number of Problems

Types of Problems at Nursing Homes

Some issues within a nursing home are much more severe than others. Medicare evaluates each problem based on 2 scales: the number of residents affected by a problem and the severity of the potential or actual harm to residents based on the problem. We have color coded the matrix below to make it easier to pick out the more severe problems. In general, orange and red issues related to the treatment of a resident are considered substandard quality of care.

  Residents Affected
Severity of the Deficiency Few Some Many
Immediate jeopardy to resident health or safety J K L
Actual harm that is not immediate jeopardy G H I
No actual harm with potential for more than minimal harm that is not immediate jeopardy D E F
No actual harm with potential for minimal harm A B C
