Nursing home Denied Payment, Failure to Correct Deficiencies

Posted on November 7, 2011

According to news sources, Medicare and Medicaid have denied to commit to payments to a Duluth nursing home because of alleged failure to rectify deficiencies apprehended in a recent survey conducted by the Minnesota Department of Health.

Reports show that the letter from the Department of Health to the facility states that the Health Center hadn’t been competent in achieving a substantial observance of all the deficiencies noted in the Department’s standard survey from early April.

One of the issues noted by the authorities according to news sources was the incapacity of an employee to report the allegations of a resident regarding a rough handling to an inspector. Another issue was the evident failure in requesting proper instructions to a care plan of a resident on dialysis. The monitoring of an alleged bleeding at the shunt premise was unsatisfactory.
