Improve Your Life with Better Control
As an inpatient, you have the opportunity to meet with a care coordinator.
This is a designated healthcare professional who continues care and helps
you transition from hospital to home. Your care coordinator will also
review your medications with you to ensure you fully understand them.
In addition, they will also speak with you about any new medications prescribed
by your physician.
Your care coordinator serves as a liasion between you and the Community
Wellness Center at Sierra View Medical Center. They will arrange for follow-up
appointments at the Community Wellness Center as needed and communicate
with your primary care provider.
After you receive inpatient care, you will be able to have a one hour visit
with a nurse or pharmacist at the Community Wellness Center to provide
support after leaving the hospital. This visit takes place before you
return to the care of your primary care physician.
At the Community Wellness Center, you will be able to focus on your personal
health goals. Our Complex Care team will provide nutrition support, exercise
tips, health education and community resources to help you achieve your
goals. You will be provided with assistance in learning better ways to
talk to your family about your health. The team will also help you understand
your conditions and how to manage them after receiving follow-up care.
After your visit, you will receive a visit summary with recommendations
from the Complex Care team to improve your health.
The Complex Care team offers help with medication management by matching
your medication to your health condition with an overall evaluation to
ensure you're taking what is best for your health goals. The Complex
Care team also provides alternatives and options for medication to help
reduce your costs and pill intake.
These services are provided to help you understand what medications you're
taking and why. It is important to manage your medications and reduce
side effects to ensure you are receiving the best treatment options available to you.
