COVID-19/Vaccination 

Merkley provided an update on COVID-19 vaccination efforts. At this point in time, individuals seeking the vaccine can contact local clinics and pharmacies. Merkley continues to be optimistic that expenses will be reimbursed by the State for vaccination efforts put forth by Brookings Health System. As fall approaches, Brookings Health will be proactive in rolling out vaccine information to SDSU students as they move into the area. It continues to be very important for those age 29 and under to get vaccinated. Currently 73.5% of all Brookings Health staff are fully vaccinated, 41% in Brookings County and 39% in the state.  

 

Medical Marijuana Taskforce 

Hillestad presented information on Initiated Measure 26 (IM-26) legalizing medical cannabis in South Dakota effective July 1, 2021 and efforts taking place within Brookings Health System to address the passage of the law. A clinical taskforce was formed internally to spearhead creation of policies, procedures and compliance with the legalization of medical marijuana and as of now, Brookings Health will not allow medical marijuana as a treatment which aligns with other hospitals in the state. 

 

This topic is very fluid and continues to change with new information being released almost daily. The State Department of Health must enact final administrative rules by October 29, 2021 and rules for the issuance of registry identification cards no later than November 18, 2021. In order to qualify to possess and purchase cannabis, individuals must apply for a registry card, have a written certification (not a prescription) from a physician and diagnosis of a debilitating condition. 

 

A taskforce has also been formed to address this matter from a human resources/employee perspective. Both the clinical and HR taskforce is equally important and challenging in a healthcare environment. Research and education will be ongoing within our facility as more information becomes available.
