We, at Tuscany Village, realize that choosing a skilled nursing facility for you or your loved one can be challenging. Our professional staff is available to assist this process go as smooth as possible. We want to educate families in making the best decision for their loved one.
Below are the steps taken for a successful admission to a skilled nursing and rehabilitation facility:
Every patient is required to have a physician’s order to be considered for admission, regardless if they are currently in the hospital or not. Our Medical Director can evaluate your loved one, and if need is established, can write the order.
The following information will assist us in understanding your individual needs and complete the admissions process:
History & Physical (H&P) – provided by your doctor or hospital
Insurance Cards, copies will do (Medicare, Medicaid, BC/BS, AARP, etc)
Social Security Card
Copies of Advanced Directives (living will, medical power of attorney, DNR, etc.)
Name, Address, Phone Number of Responsible Party
If your loved one is leaving the hospital, most of this information will be supplied by the hospital’s Discharge Planner.
Many of our residents have been referred by hospital Discharge Planners. They are an invaluable resource and we work closely with them, but the ultimate choice in facility lies with the family.
