The Anatomy of an Admission

Our admissions process begins with an inquiry from a family, physician, discharge planner, nursing agency, school district, area agency, or state agency representative. An inquiry may be for one or more of a variety of stays: long term, short term, post-operative care, and emergency. In response, director of nursing services will gather information from the family or the referral source about a child’s medical profile, developmental status and care needs. They will ask the child’s family, medical providers and local school staff to share vital information to help them understand the child’s specific needs.
