Highlighted MDH Investigations
These reports are examples from completed investigations by the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) that highlight the scope of abuse, neglect, and exploitation of elders in long-term care.

Without the voice of elders, any discussion about their care, safety, and lives will remain limited in its ability to generate the insights necessary to protect their human rights.
Without the voice of elders, attempts to develop an in-depth understanding of their lived experience of mistreatment (e.g. neglect, abuse, financial exploitation, drug diversion) as well as the profound trauma caused by it will remain incomplete.
