Skilled Nursing Care

Missouri Slope Lutheran Care Center (MSLCC) provides excellent nursing care delivered by a highly qualified team. We are regularly given excellent survey results from the State Health Department to prove this! MSLCC offers a variety of continuing education programs and encourages further training in geriatric nursing. To assure that our residents have continuity of care, we assign primary nurses and CNAs to each unit.

Here you will find a generous amount of state of the art equipment allowing our nursing staff to give comprehensive care to all residents. Nursing interventions are provided for complex and medically unstable conditions. Residents are provided loving care to meet their personal needs and are encouraged to maintain their independence.

Some of our services include: IV therapy, feeding tubes, preventive care, and hospice and dialysis coordination. Transportation is provided to all residents for medical, vision and dental visits. Our transportation staff has completed a certification course in driver safety. A certified nursing assistant will accompany residents to their appointment when a family member is unavailable.

There are approximately 15 family practice and internal medicine physicians from the two local hospitals who are the primary physicians for our residents. Residents may still see their personal physician as long as he/she completes the federally required visits at Missouri Slope Lutheran Care Center. There are physicians on call 24-hours a day/7 days a week at the clinics so in an emergency situation a physician can be reached at all times.

We are fortunate to have several physicians perform clinical assessments at our Care Center. An optometrist and ophthalmologist attend to residents’ needs at the Care Center on a regular basis. Bridging the Dental Gap provides in-house dental services each month for residents.

Our family nurse practitioners work closely with Mid Dakota Clinic and Sanford Health’s physicians to provide quality medical care to our residents. Family nurse practitioners make rounds at least twice a week at MSLCC and are available for consultation Monday through Friday.
