Residents will have an initial Medical Form completed by the primary care physician prior to admission including a baseline mini mental exam stating that the resident is appropriate for Assisted Living. Once admitted, for any appointments with outside physicians, the family will notify the nurses’ station of date, time, type of appointment and pick up time. Nurses will make a packet of information to send to the doctor with the resident including Face sheet, Current Medication List, Consultation sheet for notes from the doctor, and Physician Order sheet for any change in medication orders to be returned with the resident.
Two of the UC Physicians in the clinic each make house calls 2 times a month so the resident does not have to go over to the clinic. The doctor comes to your apartment.
If the nurses administer the medications, the nurse gets the refills. If the nurse administers the medication, all medications must be in the Box Unit Dose system. Breese uses Skilled Care Pharmacy. The family and resident are free to use their own choice of pharmacy as long as the medicine is packaged in the box unit dose system for non-narcotics. Skilled care pharmacy provides all Narcotics for all residents- the nurse administers medication.
Please let the nurses’ station know whenever taking a resident out of the facility. The sign out and sign in book is in the lobby. Residents must sign out and back in any time leaving the facility. If they will miss a meal, it will be delivered to them upon their return.
