Admissions

Current Coastal Hospice homecare patients will receive priority for admission, but a patient need not be in our care at the time of need to be eligible. All patients will be evaluated for admission according to the following eligibility criteria:

 

  • They are eligible for and elect the hospice benefit
  • They are in the final stages of a life threatening, progressive or terminal illness with a limited, poor prognosis, but their medical needs a relatively low in complexity
  • Their (or their legal caregiver’s) primary goal is to offer comfort at the end of life
  • They demonstrate progressive functional decline and declining palliative performance scale
  • They are unable to manage and remain at home for reasons such as:
    – They live alone without adequate care-giving support
    – Their care needs exceed the ability of the patient’s caregivers
    – The patient (and/or family) do not want death to occur at home

Financial Considerations

Financial arrangements are discussed and determined prior to admission. While most patients will be covered by Medicare, Medicaid or insurance for hospice care, room and board at Stansell House is “private pay.” Some financial assistance may apply.

Exceptions

Stansell House is not able to admit patients:

  • With dementia who wander and/or have a history of elopement
  • Who pose (or whose family poses) an active risk of violence or harm to self/others
  • Whose symptoms require round the clock skilled nursing care
    Whose weight is in excess of 350 pounds and/or are over 6’7”

Stansell House pledges to review each admission application on a case-by-case basis and reserves the right to deny admission if the above criteria are not met or if there are safety concerns. If a resident’s status at Stansell House changes and prognosis is extended for an indeterminate length of time, staff will assist the patient/family in finding an alternate living arrangement, either at home or a nursing facility.
