Patient Admission

Long-Term Care Admission
Members of our Social Services staff are committed to making admission to HRC as timely and comfortable an experience as possible for the applicant. To that end, the assigned social worker follows the senior throughout the application process. If the applicant's condition changes, the social worker may determine that a different "neighborhood of care" would be more suitable and, if so, how the new status might affect the waiting period. The social worker is also available to assist the senior and the family in decision making and provide support during the transition period from application to admission. 

Medical Acute Care Unit
One of Hebrew Rehabilitation Center's clinical liaisons evaluates patients prior to admission to the Medical Acute Care Unit. A decision about the patient's appropriateness for admission is made based on clinical information and a discussion with the patient and family. 

Rehabilitative Services Unit (Skilled Nursing Care)
Following a screening by a case manager or discharge planner at an acute care hospital, patients will consult with their physician and family to determine the most appropriate post-hospital care plan. Goals and objectives will be established. If the RSU is recommended, the patient meets the unit's criteria for clinical expertise, and a bed is available, the patient will be admitted to the RSU for short-term care.
