Administrator’s Report

S. Eifert stated we completed the measles clinic and only used 14 vaccines.  We will keep the vaccines in stock and continue to use as needed.  We partnered with HSHS for the back to school clinic which will be held the last two Wednesdays of July.  Our corrective action plan for CARF has been submitted.  The Tobacco grant changed this year.  We asked businesses to pledge to follow the Smoke-free Illinois Act.  We have a surprise party scheduled for Cindy Burge at 2:00 PM tomorrow to celebrate her working at the health department for 40 years.  Dr. Mueller has opted out of his contract in the Dental Clinic, as he has purchased an additional practice.   

Approval of May Activity Reports

S. Eifert stated the current census for Home Health is 73 and 7 Hospice.  The census is good and continues to stay that way.  S. Eifert stated he will be in Normal next week for the Emergency Preparedness Summit.  T. Dawdy asked for a motion to approve the June 2019 activity reports.  M. McCullough moved to approve the June 2019 activity reports as submitted.  D. Korte seconded the motion, which passed unanimously. 

Approval of May Financial Reports

This was a difficult month.  It was a three payroll month in addition to one RN in Home Health & Hospice on maternity leave and one RN off for a death and prearranged vacation.  The initial assessments take 1-2 hours with 1-4 hours paperwork.  They have never turned away a referral.  Amy Davis has been helping cover visits as well.  Mental Health billing has improved since last year.  Expect June numbers to be down as we have to spend the grants out.  The current cash balance as of May 31, 2019 is $610,515.06.  T. Dawdy asked for a motion to approve the May Financial Reports.  W. Ahern moved to approve the May financial reports as submitted.   M. Bleyer seconded the motion, which passed unanimously.
