The Physician's Role

 

It is usually not necessary to see a doctor on a regular basis, however the nursing staff is in regular phone contact with a physician to review your care plan, medical condition and medication needs.

 

You will see a doctor once a month at a minimum, or on an as-needed basis.

 

 

If you relapse and return to the hospital:

 

Existing Medi-Cal patients:
Medi-Cal will pay to reserve your bed for up to seven days, after which you may be discharged from the facility.

 

Medicare or other payor sources:
You can pay privately for a bed hold if you wish to return or you may be discharged when you go to the hospital.
