Admission Criteria

Persons who meet the general eligibility requirements to be admitted to this facility will only be admitted when their nursing and medical needs can be met adequately by the facility. Nursing and medical needs of individuals with mental disorders or intellectual disabilities will be determined by coordination with the Medicaid Pre Admission Screening and Resident Review program (PASARR) to the extent practicable.

Residents are admitted to this facility as long as their needs can be met adequately by the facility.

Severity levels of medical/psychological/nursing conditions may be cause for non-acceptance for admission to the facility.

The acceptance of residents with certain conditions or needs may require authorization or approval by the medical director, director of nursing services, and/or the administrator.

Our admission policies apply to all residents admitted to the facility regardless of race, color, creed, national origin, age, sex, religion, handicap, ancestry, marital or veteran status, and/or payment source.
