MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The Minnesota Department of Health has taken over a Minneapolis nursing home, saying it was necessary to protect residents.

The Camden Care Center on 49th Avenue North has been cited earlier this year for 47 violations. The Health Department reports several of those violations were serious and put residents at risk.

The facility has a mix of residents receiving senior care, mental health care and chemical dependency treatment.

The Health Department says this step was a last resort to restore basic standards of care.
