SD House Passes Bill To Redistribute Nursing Beds

February 22, 2012, 5:24 PM

PIERRE, SD - Some South Dakota nursing homes are struggling to find beds, but a bill that has passed the House may
help solve the shortage.

House members voted 66-2 on a bill Wednesday that allows the Department of Health, with help from the Social Services Department, to annually shift nursing facility beds to areas with the highest need.

Gov. Dennis Daugaard advisor Deb Bowman says the eastern half of the state has beds that could go to the Rapid City area, allowing residents to stay closer to their homes.

She says the state has 74 beds from closed facilities. The bill allows an exception to Gov. George Mickelson's1988 moratorium on buying more beds with state taxpayer dollars.

Next it goes to the Governor's desk for his signature.
