Screen Shot 2015-07-24 at 10.54.17 AMA St. Cloud residential home has been fined 12 hundred dollars after the Minnesota Department of Human Services says a resident wasn’t properly secured in a wheelchair and fell out of it while riding in a van in May.

The resident received just minor cuts. The agency also accused Eriksmoen Cottages of failing to report the incident. The company must also make sure that its staff is properly trained on how to transport residents.
