Oshkosh Northwestern, “Oshkosh mental health center makes changes after death,” August 2015: “The citations were for inadequately documenting of nursing care; not following a sufficiently individualized treatment plan; and using a restraint incompatible with a pre-existing medical condition. Erik Haak, 33, died as the result of a June 5 incident at the center, during which staff members were trying to restrain him and he stopped breathing.”

Wisconsin State Journal, “Feds sanction Winnebago Mental Health Institute, could halt Medicare contract,” May 2018: “Inspectors issued 48 citations to Winnebago in December and February for a variety of problems, including noncompliance with five Medicare rules. The violations involve improper patient care, inadequate nursing staff, poor oversight of medical staff, an unsafe physical environment and other concerns.”
