State suspends license of Hill City assisted living facility

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

HILL CITY, MN – The Minnesota Office of Inspector General has issued a 90-day suspension of a Hill City-based assisted living facility.

In a letter dated December 6, the agency said it suspended the license of Chappy’s Golden Shores, based on what it calls ‘serious alleged violations” of Minnesota home care laws following an investigation.

The suspension went into effect at 12:01 a.m. December 7, forcing the facility’s 33 residents to move out.

The Licensing Division says it received information alleging that “multiple and repeated serious incidents affecting vulnerable persons occurred in your licensed program.”

The letter addressed to Theresa Olson, an authorized agent with Chappy’s Golden Shores, said the state “finds the health, safety and rights of person being served by your program are at imminent risk of harm.”

In a statement Friday, the Minnesota Department of Health said it’s working with county and state partners to ensure the safety and appropriate ongoing care of the clients impacted by this action.

MDH said county officials are working to relocate many of the clients to other providers. For any clients staying there, the state says it’s making sure they’re treated right.

Clients and family members with questions can contact their case manager, county adult protection or the Minnesota Ombudsman for Long Term Care (800-657-3591). Any allegations of maltreatment should be directed to the Minnesota Adult Abuse Reporting Center (844-880-1574).

The facility has the right to appeal the order within five days.
