Under state rule, a physician must examine a certified NF or boarding care resident within five days prior to or 72 hours after admission. Each person can choose whom their primary physician is through CHI St. Francis Health, Essentia, or Sanford from Breckenridge/Wahpeton. After the admitting examination, the physician must see the resident at lease every 30 days for the first 90 days after admission and at least every 60 days thereafter.
St. Francis Home is a smoke free environment. No smoking in the buildings, rooms or grounds is permitted. This supports a Healthier Community Initiative.
