Your physician will explain and answer questions regarding all medical testing, treatment and procedures. You or your legal representative must sign authorization forms prior to treatment or the performance of procedures. A parent or legal guardian must sign for minor children.
Care conferences, an interdisciplinary group meeting between caregivers, patients and families are held once a week to give patients and their families the opportunity to be involved in care decisions and planning.
A Discharge Planner is available on-site at Henry County Hospital to assist patients in making a smooth transition into post-hospital care. The Discharge Planner works to recognize and attend to the psychosocial needs of patients and their families during hospitalization and through discharge. Other services available include referrals for rehabilitation or nursing home care, home health, home delivered meals or other services as needed.
With the room service approach patients are offered the freedom of ordering their meal from a restaurant style menu, at anytime throughout the day. There is no limit to the amount of times a patient can order throughout each day. Patients' family members are welcome to eat in the room with the patients as socialization and companionship are proven to promote healing, as well as better nutrition. Dietitians also play a vital role in the room service approach. Patients receive education from a dietitian on what foods will help aide them on their path to wellness while in the hospital and at home.
