Trustee of the month – Richard Schumann
While Rick was waiting in the ER entrance, he observed an interaction between a patient and staff members at the screening desk. Staff did an excellent job dealing with the uncooperative patient.
Emergency Room – The Emergency Room report was reviewed by Jan Kollodge (copy attached to original minutes). ER numbers are down due to COVID at 112. The emergent patients (59) outnumbered the non-emergent (53).
Pharmacy – Reviewed by Jan Kollodge. (Copy attached to original minutes.) Dr. Chris Shea was at Mt. Grant yesterday. He said not to be concerned with the Medication Utilization Summary for areas above peers/needs improvement. The percentage is driven up due to the small number of residents in our nursing home. Chris will provide a three month report for antibiotic usage next month.
