MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A state investigation says nurses at a St. Cloud nursing home made no effort to revive a resident who became ill and died last June.
When admitted to St. Benedict's Senior Community, the resident had declared that resuscitation efforts should be made in life-threatening situations.
The Minnesota Department of Health placed responsibility for the death with the facility because three nurses failed to give emergency medical care or start CPR.
The nursing home has objected to the findings but did not appeal.
According to the report, two nurses who checked the resident's pulse were suspended on the day of the death and later fired. The supervisory nurse received retraining.
The nursing home's administrator tells the Star Tribune home did everything it could to prepare staff for the situation.

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - There's a special fan cheering in the stands at the state boys' hockey tournament in St. Paul.
Alyssa Lommel cheered for her brother and his team, St. Cloud Cathedral, when the tournament kicked off Wednesday at the Xcel Energy Center. The 19-year-old Lommel is the University of Minnesota-Duluth student who survived a night in the subzero temperatures last December before she was found unconscious on a neighbor's porch in Duluth. Lommel lost parts of her hands and feet to frostbite.
Her brother, Leo, tells KARE-TV his sister's strength has been an inspiration. He says Alyssa is the only girl among his siblings, but is tougher than his older brothers.
Lommel has been recovering at home in St. Cloud since she left the hospital last month.

A teenager is facing multiple charges including two counts of fleeing police in a motor vehicle after leading St. Cloud police on a ten minute chase Tuesday afternoon.
According to St. Cloud Police Sergeant Jason Burke, officers pursued a vehicle after reports shown it was stolen. They spotted the vehicle, driven by 19-year-old Brandon Gene Knowlen of St. Cloud, before it fled from them in the area of 33rd Avenue South and 2nd Street South. Officers lost sight of Knowlen near Coborn’s on Cooper Avenue South, until a Community officer from the St. Cloud police spotted him in the southeast part of town near Riverside Park.
Police chased Knowlen a second time when he was heading westbound on University Drive South at 5th Avenue South. Deputies used stop sticks on the vehicle that deflated one of the tires. However, Knowlen was lost again near Washington Memorial Drive South and University Drive South.
Knowlen was finally caught in the vehicle while parked in a detached garage at an apartment complex in the 1400 block of Washington Memorial Drive South. With a short struggle with officers, the teenager was taken into custody and booked in the Stearns County Jail with multiple charges including two counts of fleeing police in a motor vehicle and possession of a stolen motor vehicle.
No injuries, accidents or damaged squad cars were reported in the chase.
