About CSI/Updates:

Andy- Facility will be showing the DVD in June. Family council is starting to meet.

Darcy- Top deficiencies written by the Duluth District Office in the last survey cycle were F272 and F274 (Comprehensive Assessment); F279 (Comprehensive Care Plan); F314 (Pressure ulcers); and F315 (Urinary Incontinence).

Darcy- Questioned if Dan Billings (Former Duluth Surveyor) would come to a CSI meeting to talk about how it looks from the other side.

Darcy- QIS will likely start after the 1st of the year.

Larry- Appreciates the training provided by MDH. Improved communication has improved survey results. Most facilities want to do things right- it would be better to work together. The survey is not a true picture of a facility but rather a snap shot.

Shane- Will contact Dan Billings to see if he would be interested in attending a CSI meeting.

Barb-Facility is focusing on patient centered care.

Nancy- Facility had been surveyed since the last CSI meeting. Felt the communication between nurse managers and survey team was relaxed. Facility will have a 25 bed secure unit opening sometime in June.

Debee- Knew the purpose of CSI was to improve communication.
