Admissions

Welcome to Hickory Creek Healthcare

We look forward to getting to know you

The admissions process starts before a resident enters our community. Below is important information to help new families prepare for a move to our community.

Items needed for an Admission

A signed agreement between the resident or responsible party and Hickory Creek Healthcare is required and establishes the terms of payments for services rendered and obtains consent to provide medical care.

Also required is a physical examination or current medical report that includes:
  • Current medical findings and diagnosis
  • Chest x-ray
  • Evaluation of restorative potential and rehabilitative procedures
  • Hospital treatment summary (if the resident was admitted from a hospital)
  • Medical and social plans
  • Orders for continuing care
 
A scheduled physician visits occurs at least once every 30 days for the first 90 days after admission and at least every 60 days thereafter. When an attending physician is unable to make this commitment, our community will prove this service utilizing our Medical Director. Each center’s Medical Director is a licensed physician, usually with privileges at a local hospital.
