GENERAL ADMISSION PROCESS

Step 1: The referring source identifies need for long term care and/or skilled nursing care is identified and sends a referral to the Caring House for review and consideration.

Step 2: The Caring House requests current medical documentation related to the patient’s medical needs from the referral source. (Referral order, current medical records, must be enrolled in Arizona Long Term Care Services (ALTC)and medical need in order to determine if TCH is able to provide the needed care).

Step 3: When the admission criteria have been met, the Caring House Admissions Office works with the referral source, Medical Director and/or the hospital facility’s discharge planner to coordinate the transfer of the patient to the Caring House.

Step 4: At this point, the Caring House Medical Director will:

  • Assume responsibility for the patient/resident.
  • Communicate with the patient/resident’s primary care provider on an “as needed” basis.
