Plan of Care
Your individual plan of care is a team effort, directed toward meeting your needs and returning you to an attainable health status goal. You will be asked to participate in your care planning process.
You or a family member may wish to plan or have assistance in planning for your return to home and should consider the following:
Will you need Social Services assistance?
Will you need Home Health Care?
Will you need special equipment or services?
Have you or your family members received instructions about dietary needs?
Can you prepare your own meals?
Who will do the shopping?
Do you live on one floor? Have bathroom facilities? Stairs? Safety devices?
Do you understand your personal care? Shower? Tub and bath safety? Dressing changes? Care of wound? Exercise? Medications?
Please discuss these and any other items with your nurse. We are happy to assist you in solving any problems. Berlin Memorial Hospital values its relationship with our patients. We recognize that patients receiving services within our facility have certain individual rights and responsibilities. The hospital presents these rights and responsibilities to the patient in this admission handbook. Berlin Memorial Hospital strives to contribute more effective patient care that results in greater patient satisfaction.
