Oregon state hospital working to keep Medicare funding

An Oregon state hospital's work to keep its Medicare funding is underway, the Register Guard reported June 6.

The Oregon State Hospital provides psychiatric services for adults needing hospital-level mental health treatment at a main campus in Salem, in addition to a secondary campus in Junction City. CMS requested a corrective action plan for the Junction City hospital on May 5 after state regulators found supervision and reporting deficiencies. Issues ranged from the lack of a permanent on-site administrator to incidents where staff lost visual contact with patients while on outings.

The hospital submitted a draft plan to CMS May 14 and was expected to submit a final plan on June 6, according to the Register Guard

The May 14 plan said that implementation is underway and many of the identified deficiencies, including the lack of an on-site administrator, should be corrected by June 14, according to the report.
