The Care Management/Social Services Department of Saint Francis Hospital provides discharge-planning services to meet the needs of all patients.
Our qualified care managers/social workers can help you make arrangements for healthcare services and medical equipment to be provided at home after discharge. We can also assist families with decisions about, and arrangements for, nursing home care and other forms of assisted living.
The Care Management/Social Services Department provides referrals to a variety of community agencies. At Saint Francis all patients are provided “choice” options for all referrals. You will be asked for consent for this process.
Any patient or family member can request the assistance of the Care Management/Social Services Department. Please ask your physician or nurse to make arrangements for you to speak with a Saint Francis care manager/social worker.
