Case Management

Staff is available to identify individual patient needs, such as facilitation of discharge planning, including transfers to home or other healthcare options. The case manager will provide counsel and support to patients and families and link them with the most appropriate community resources.

A case manager can also facilitate and coordinate issues such as Medical and General Power of Attorney, Advanced Directives-Living Wills, Guardianship, and Conservatorship. Additionally, he or she can assist patients, families, caregivers, and hospital personnel with decision making about ethical issues and initiate referrals to the bio-ethics committee as needed.
