When You Arrive

To help us provide your family member with the best possible care, please come prepared with accurate information about the patient’s medical history and needs. When you register, you will be asked to complete various forms including consent for treatment, release of medical records, and protection of health information. Please bring all required medical and legal papers, along with the names and addresses of doctors and other providers who will need copies of the medical records. Admission paperwork must be signed by the patient, if over 18, or the patient’s legal guardian. Upon admission, all patients are photographed and asked to wear identification bands to ensure safety. Please plan to be with your family member as much as possible during the first several days, as our staff will have questions and information for you.
