Admissions

IT’S MORE THAN A MISSION, IT’S A CALLING.

Quality healthcare, right here at home!  We are deeply dedicated to our residents, striving to provide compassionate, high-quality nursing and therapy services while promoting healing, providing hope and preserving dignity for all – including our families.

We understand that this is a difficult time and our Admissions Department is here to assist you with the process and help you every step of the way.    We accept admissions 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

When you are considering admission, there are three different locations from which to be admitted:

  1. Hospital (most common)
  2. Transfer from another facility
  3. Admit from the community (such as at home)

WHAT WE REQUIRE FOR RESIDENT ADMISSION

  1. Admission order, dated and signed, by a physician or nurse practitioner/physician assistant for the immediate care to include medication, treatment, activities and diet orders
  2. History & Physical, including the following, within the last 30 days:
    • Medical history (previous illnesses, drug reactions and food allergies, emotional reactions, etc.)
    • Current diagnosis
    • Chest x-ray
    • History of tuberculosis exposure and an assessment for signs and symptoms of tuberculosis, by a licensed physician or nurse practitioner/physician assistant
    • First step of a two-step Mantoux tuberculin skin test
  3. Pre-admission Screening (PAS)
  4. Demographic and insurance information
  5. Advanced Directives
  6. Power of Attorney (POA)
  7. List of medications used at home to assist with medication reconciliation

We will work closely with the case manager, social worker or physician’s office to obtain the required medical information on your behalf.

TYPES OF RESIDENTS WE SERVE

  • Short-term care: residents requiring skilled nursing services and/or rehabilitation services to return to a lower level of care, such as back to their home.
  • Long-term care: residents with chronic illnesses or disabilities that are not able to care for themselves and may require skilled nursing services and rehabilitation services intermittently.
  • Respite care: intermittent short-term stay to relieve the primary caregiver of their duties on a temporary basis.
  • Personal care resident: independent with majority of ADL care (activities of daily living, such as walking, eating and grooming self) needing little assistance other than medication oversight.
