    Step 1: Referrals

    Referrals can be received from several sources, CCG’s, Hospital Discharge Teams, Social Workers, Continuing Care Teams, as well as individuals funded by insurance and for self-pay.

    Step 2: Assessment

    Each potential resident is visited in their current environment (where possible) and an initial assessment of their nursing, therapy and care needs is carried out by one of the clinical team from Kings Lodge.  Medical, nursing, and therapy notes are obtained from the current care facility to help shape the care plan for any stay in Kings Lodge.

    Step 3: Care plan

    Once the clinical team have agreed that the appropriate care and therapy can be provided by Kings Lodge to the patient, fee levels are determined and forwarded to the appropriate funding body for their approval.

    The level of Fees is based solely on the nursing and care requirements of the individual.  Those individuals who require a higher level of dependency (1:1 care, tracheostomy care etc) will attract higher fees.  Each individual is considered on a case-by-case basis for funding approval.

    Step 4: Approval and Admission

    Once the fees are approved by the funding body then the clinical team will arrange a suitable date with the current care providers for the transfer to Kings Lodge.  The aim is to deliver a seamless transfer of care from one home to another.
