Before you are admitted to the hospital, an admissions counselor will call you to obtain preliminary information, provide important information regarding your hospital stay and answer your questions. Your doctor also may schedule routine medical tests, such as laboratory tests or X-rays, before your hospitalization. Other routine tests may be done on the day of your admission.
If you need skilled nursing care or physical therapy at home, Case Management/Social Services will help you arrange this service if medically necessary. We also will arrange ongoing hospitalization at a skilled nursing facility or rehabilitation hospital if needed.
If you are not physically able to return home when you are ready to leave the hospital, you may require acute rehabilitation or skilled nursing care in another facility. If your doctor thinks you will need this kind of care, you may wish to visit several facilities before your admission. Our staff can assist you with the process.
