Discharge Planner

The Activity Director at SCHD#1 works with patients, families, and the entire care team to advocate for and assist our patients with problem solving personal or environmental difficulties that may arise during an illness. We have excellent staff that strive to ensure that the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of our patients are met, both while they are a patient, as well as after discharge.

Our staff facilitates post-discharge services including

  • Home health aides and hospice
  • Nursing home placement
  • Home and community-based service referrals
  • A variety of outpatient services
  • Medical follow-up

We can also assist with arranging for requested pastoral or spiritual care through our Volunteer Chaplain program or contact with a specific clergy member identified by the patient. Other psychosocial needs are address by providing social service support, crisis support, and discharge planning assistance,
Our Activity Director/ Discharge Planner team can also assist patients with the completion of advance directives such as living wills or durable power of attorney for healthcare.
For assistance, please notify your nurse or Care Coordination department at (620) 845-6492
