What to Expect Upon Admission
At the time of admission to the Huron County Medical Care Facility, an admission conference will be held. The conference is a meeting to gather information for the interdisciplinary team to begin developing a plan of care. The resident and their family will also meet privately with the social worker, admission coordinator and billing clerk. Upon completion of paperwork, the resident and family will be accompanied to their room where their direct care staff will complete a nursing assessment. Shortly thereafter the therapy team will perform an evaluation to determine a therapy program.
