Are there private rooms available?
The majority of our rooms are private. To request a private or semi-private room talk with the Admissions Nurse.
What clothing do I need to bring?
Laundry is included in the room rate but some individuals prefer that their family take their laundry home to wash it. If Pleasant View does the laundry you should bring in about seven day’s worth of clothing so that there are enough outfits to wear while other clothes are being cleaned. If family does the laundry, you only need to bring in enough clothing for as often as the family is going to launder it. Bring clothing that is going to be comfortable for you to wear during your stay. We do provide hospital gowns at night time if you desire.
Clothing Items for 7 days:
When do I get to discharge?
Discharge is determined by therapy, your primary care physician, and nursing staff. The Nurse Care Coordinator, social services, and therapy will assist you with your discharge. Discharges are to be completed before noon on the expected day of discharge.
May I go out with my family while I am there?
If you are an individual on Medicare A you may not go out with your family except for special occasions with a physician’s order because Medicare feels that if you are able to be out in the community that you do not need to be at a skilled nursing facility. If you are admitted and are not under Medicare A you may go out on community pass with a doctors order and you must let our staff know ahead of time so that arrangements can be made for medications etc.
