Chair C. Gorske called the meeting of the Governing Body of the Acute Psychiatric Hospital to order at 4:15 p.m.  A quorum was present. 


Motion by D. Will, second by S. Holstein and carried, to approve the minutes of the 9/6/17 Governing Body of the Acute Psychiatric Hospital meeting as written.




No citizens present.




Minutes from the 10/26/17 Utilization Review, Quality Assurance, Pharmacy and Therapeutics and the Infection Control Committees were reviewed.  Under Utilization Review, D. Will asked what Metastar is and what they do.  Metastar is an outside agency that reviews Acute Unit admissions for Medicaid for approval or denial of payment.  Under Pharmacy and Therapeutics it was explained that a medication error can occur if the pharmacy gets the medication request over the weekend or after hours and the Acute Unit then doesn’t have the medication in time to administer to the patient.  Mr. Will complimented Dr. Musunuru and the staff for doing an overall really good job of providing a variety of services.  He asked that Doctor pass along a thank you to the staff for all their hard work.


Motion by M.J. Nicholson, second by D. Will and carried, to receive and place on file, the Quality Assurance reports.


Motion by S. Holstein, second by G. Bonlander and carried, to adjourn the meeting at 4:24 p.m.


Respectfully submitted:
