Hospital CMS Hearing

Posted on 01 March 2011 by KWBG

BOONE, Iowa—The Boone County Hospital Administrators will be arguing for the right to continue operating a skilled nursing unit on the 3rd floor of the hospital. About a year ago, the Kansas City Regional Office determined the service need to stop because the floor wasn’t full of patients all the time. Last year, an Administrative Law Judge ruled that the Hospital did have grounds to appeal the determination, setting up the hearing planned for next week. The skilled nursing service was closed down as a result of the initial ruling by CMS.
