Admitting staff receives prior notice of the date and time of a patient’s arrival. Upon admission, the patient or their designee must sign the conditions of admissions form to enable Kentfield to begin treatment. If the patient is unable to sign for him/herself, please have someone accompany the patient to the hospital. If a designated person cannot be present at the time of admission, please make arrangements to complete the admission paperwork prior to the patient’s arrival.
Kentfield also requires a copy of the insurance cards, a copy of the patient’s advance directive/durable power of attorney and additional information as requested.
The patient and family will be met by a member of the nursing staff who will answer questions about the patient’s care or accommodations.
Kentfield does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, creed, religion, age, sex, national origin, handicap or sexual orientation.
