careDoctor's Order: Your Perfect Prescription for Health Care Services

People do not usually anticipate becoming ill or needing nursing services. many times, life is going along just fine, and then suddenly, there is a health crisis. For most, that can mean a trip to the hospital and a need for nursing services. The big question becomes, "What do we do now?"

Residents of Masonic Village at Elizabethtown do not face those worries. When they move on campus, they know that whatever health issues may arise, we are able to assist them. A good example is of a woman living in the Residential Living area enjoying her time at craft classes and day trips. One day, she wakes up with a tightness in her chest. Concerned, she pulls the emergency cord conveniently located on her floor. This alerts the emergency response team, which is dispatched to her suite. An ambulance is called, and she is admitted to the local hospital. When ready for discharge, she is transported to the Masonic Health Care Center for a rehabilitation stay. After completion of her rehab stay, she transitions back to her residential suite.

That sounds so easy, doesn't it? However, for a person living alone in a house or apartment, this scenario can be a nightmare. Many times, much time is lost in getting the ambulance to the home and then transporting to the hospital.nearing the end of the hospital stay, a social worker tries to assist the patient in locating a nursing home for rehabilitation. That social worker will find the first open room and arrange transport for the rehabilitation stay. While at rehab, the patient is often mot able to go directly back home because he or she needs some support services to finish the path to complete wellness. the in-home care or family assistance must be arranged.
