Mission: Chris Jensen Health & Rehab is more than just rehab: We meet our community's short-term and continuing care needs through compassionate health care and support services.
What is the difference between worker's compensation and personal injury?
Both involve physical injuries. However, if you are injured in the job, it is called workers compensation. The workers compensation procedure is more straightforward and does not involve a court trial or a jury. Since it is so different, if you have a workers compensation injury, you should turn to the workers compensation page on this web site.
What services are provided?
Chris Jensen is a skilled nursing home providing 24 hour care. We employ over 250 staff members in our short term rehab, long term care area and memory care neighborhoods. We offer social services, physical therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy, dietary services and social recreational therapies.
Tell me about the placement process.
After an assessment has been completed the Admissions Director will discuss the important aspects of the care needs, insurance coverage, and the services that will be provided. Your physician will complete the necessary paperwork to facilitate the placement. Transportation will be provided to the facility and an initial meeting of the care team will be scheduled. The patient and their family will help to shape the plan for care. Social services will help answer any additional questions. Each department will meet with the family and resident to determine their individual needs and preferences for medical cares, social activities, and dietary requirements.

How does Traction Control (TRAC) and Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) work and what are the benefits?
Toyota’s Traction Control System continuously monitors the wheels whenever the vehicle accelerates. As soon as it detects that one or more drive wheels is starting to spin, it applies the brakes to the wheels and controls engine output to help the wheels better adhere to the road surface.
Toyota’s VSC monitors your steering angle and the direction your vehicle is actually traveling and senses when your front or rear wheels begin to slip.
When it senses this loss of traction or slip, VSC reduces engine power and applies braking to the individual wheels that need it to help correct the slip and keep the vehicle in the intended path.

What are the effects of ethanol or E85 fuel?
Flex fuel vehicles are vehicles that run on gasoline or E85, a fuel that contains up to 15 percent of ethanol. While Fuel economy will be substantially lower for any vehicle that uses E85 due to its lower energy, flex fuels make a difference at the pump by costing roughly 50 cents less per gallon. Vehicles that are designed for flex fuel, will have no difficulty switching back and forth between fuels. There are no issues with mixing E85 with unleaded gasoline in any ratio. The ECU senses the E85/unleaded gasoline ratio and adjusts engine performance accordingly.
