The Admission Process
In an effort to replicate the process of a typical resident, I arrived at Paul Spring recently to complete all the necessary paperwork and exams that are required of every resident. I emphasized to the staff to walk me through the process exactly as they would for any resident. According to Paul Spring staff (Sarah Nye pictured here with me), most residents will visit the community 4-8 times before moving in, so for most people, all of these elements are not done at one session like in my situation. Also, many times there are adult children present during the process.
My first order of business was completing my application; many times this is something that prospective residents will complete at home. About halfway through that process I was able to meet with Director of Nursing, Pat Ferriter, RN to conduct the health screening portion of my admission.
