Chris Jensen Health and Rehab Center Survey Results

Results from a survey dated May 12, 2016, indicated that Chris Jensen Health and Rehabilitation Center in Duluth Minnesota had deficiencies which were severe enough to place them on dubious list of special focus facility list of nursing homes with high numbers of serious deficiencies.

On April 7, 2016, the Minnesota Department of Health completed a Post Certification Revisit (PCR) and on April 5, 2016, the Minnesota Department of Public Safety completed a PCR to verify that the facility had achieved and maintained compliance with federal certification deficiencies issued pursuant to an extended survey, completed on February 10, 2016. The MDH presumed, based on their plan of correction, that the facility had corrected these deficiencies as of March 29, 2016. Based the visit, it was determined that your Chris Jensen Health and Rehabilitation Center  has not obtained substantial compliance with the deficiencies issued pursuant to our extended survey, completed on February 10, 2016. The deficiencies not corrected are as follows:

FTag 282, F 282, 42 CFR 483.20(k)(3)(ii) Services By Qualified Persons/per Care Plan

FTag 314, F 314 , 42 CFR 483.25(c) Treatment/Services To Prevent/heal Pressure Sores

The most serious deficiencies in the facility  were found to be isolated deficiencies that constituted actual harm that was not immediate jeopardy (Level G), as evidenced by the attached CMS-2567, whereby corrections were required.

As a result of the revisit findings, the Category 1 remedy of state monitoring remained in effect.

In addition, this Department recommended to the CMS Region V Office the following actions related to the imposed remedies in their letter of March 7, 2016:

Discretionary denial of payment for all Medicare and Medicaid admissions effective April 10, 2016, remain in effect.
