Programs: Beulah community nursing home, d/b/a knife river care center, is a licensed 86-bed long term care nursing facility, which provides skilled nursing care to the elderly in the beulah, north dakota area. The facility also provides a variety of services, which include, but are not limited to, i. V. Therapy, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, tube feedings, tracheotomy care, and wound care. The facility provides 24-hour services of a licensed social worker in order to meet the varying psychosocial needs of all residents. Knife river care center is a participant in the state and federal medicare and medicaid programs. All costs incurred for the fiscal year were related to providing the necessary services to those individuals who required the support of a long term care facility. In order to meet state and federal requirements for electronic health records, knife river care center was able to qualify for a 1% loan through the bank of north dakota. While this isn't a grant, the 1% loan provides a more affordable method for knife river care center to meet the state and federal emr mandates. Krcc continues to pay off this low interest emr loan. Due to the proximity of oil fields in the beulah area, knife river care center is experiencing staffing shortages. The state provided a calculation method to determine how much money could be allocated to oil field long term care facilities. Knife river care center was fortunate to receive an amount based upon our census and area population of $49,431. These monies were earmarked to offset our extensive contract agency expense.
