Medilodge of Taylor
As a RN I have certain expectations yet understand the challenges a LTC/rehab facility and staff have. As a family, we were very involved and as a nurse, I had certain expectations for my father's care. I visited any time, day or night and never found things to be an issue. When I was in town I spoke to the staff at least daily and from AZ I called to find out labs, review meds, spoke to his PT/OT therapist for updates at least 3 times/week. They were polite and didn't complain and recognized it as being proactive in his health and recovery. It is ALWAYS beneficial for advocating for your own care. I felt I was reasonable and respectful in my expectations, but I had several of them and they worked hard in meeting them. Certainly there were a few recommendations I would have but they weren't significant enough to even mention. Overall, he was unhappy about going to rehab but his experience at Medilodge of Taylor was a positive one and should we ever have to seek such assistance again, there would be no shopping around...he would return to Medilodge of Taylor. Thank you staff for making his experience as pleasant as it could be.
Tips & Advices
Many hospitals have their own websites that include information about services offered and how to contact personnel. But you can also search online, in the phone book, and through health and medical-focused review websites.
Medical service prices vary according to the hospital, the type of procedure, and many regulations. The price that a patient actually pays will depend on their insurance coverage policies. If they do not have health insurance, patients may establish payment plans with the health care provider directly.
Most Americans older than 65 are insured under the Medicare program for emergency hospital visits and basic medical care. Whether you are about to turn 65 or already have, you should familiarize yourself with the Medicare program and the benefits it provides. Medicare can work in conjunction with a workplace or other private health plan. Seniors should also take the time to establish legal documents concerning future medical care and end-of-life procedures. These include a living will, advance medical directive, and related documents.
Visitation rules vary by hospital, but in general, any biological or legal family member of a patient is allowed to visit them at an appropriate time and at the patient’s discretion. Friends are typically  allowed to visit at the patient’s and their caregiver’s discretion. A patient may also designate a support person to make decisions on their behalf regarding visitation.
Ambulances are driven and staffed by medical professionals who will transport patients to the closest hospital that can provide the specific services needed. Some hospitals specialize in certain types of emergency care - facilities that specialize in trauma, heart attacks, stroke victims, and children are a few common examples. The patient being transported has the right to request a particular hospital, but the ambulance personnel may refuse this request if they have reason to believe treatment is required as soon as possible. Paramedics may require you to sign a waiver before transporting you to a hospital that you request.
