He Lost His Arms, His Legs and His Nose to a Rare Infection. Are His Pit Bull Ellie ’s Licks to Blame?
(WEST BEND, Wis.) — It’s hard to regard Ellie as a menace. When Greg Manteufel is frustrated or feeling down, she sits by him. At night, she sleeps under his covers. At dinner, she’s there next to him, knowing he’ll throw something her way. She belies the stereotype of the vicious pit bull. “We love her like she’s our daughter,” he said of the dog. And yet, Ellie may be the reason Manteufel, 49, nearly died. Gravely ill, he lost parts of his arms and legs, as well as the skin of his nose and part of his upper lip. The cause was capnocytophaga (cap-noh-seye-TOE’-fah-gah), a ge...

SNF Medical Directors and Clinicians in PDPM Have Vital Role
On October 1, 2019, the Patient Driven Payment Model (PDPM) will change how skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) are reimbursed for post-acute care provided to Medicare A recipients.
