What do I do to have my parent enter the Bethel Nursing Home?
Nursing facilities are for residents whose needs are complex and need nursing care and supervision.
The Mountrail Bethel Home is dedicated to providing quality care to its residents. It prides itself on being a wonderful place to call home with 24 hour care and high staff to resident ratio. It is a 52 bed skilled nursing facility. It features semi-private rooms with shared bath, private rooms with a shared bath and private rooms with a private bath. Further safety measures, such as the use of Secure Care, provide essential protection to each resident in the Mountrail Bethel Home.
There are several steps that need to be taken to ensure your loved one is in need of nursing home care. Step One would be to contact Kelly Gustavson at 628-2442, ext. 118. Step Two will be for her to confirm payer source. There are mainly three sources we accept in our home. They are Long Term Care insurance, Medicaid or Private Pay. Long Term Care insurance and Medicaid patients need to meet a certain level of care in order to be placed in the Nursing Home. Self pay does not need to meet any sort of level of care. Medicare does cover, but for a limited number of days. Step Three is the collecting of medical records of the resident wanting into the Nursing Home. Step Four is the review of Steps Two and Three by an Admission Team that makes the final decision on if a resident can come into the Mountrail Bethel Home. There runs a risk of denial if we feel we cannot safely care for your family member, if a Medicaid patient does not meet the level of care that Medicaid will pay for or if there are no funds available to pay for services provided monthly for a resident.
The Mountrail Bethel Home currently has openings available at the facility. Please contact Kelly with any of your needs. Or if you want further information in regards to where your loved one fits on the Long Term Care Decision tree please go to https://carechoice.nd.assistguide.net/
