The services of a Nurse Practitioner, Low Vision Optometrist, Otolaryngologist, and Mental Health Social Worker are available on campus at regularly scheduled intervals. If necessary, our medical team will coordinate emergency services, hospital visits and appointments with private doctors in the local community.
Registered Professional Nurses (RNs) and Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) are on campus 8 to 12 hours a day, seven days a week. The nursing staff will provide training and support with medication administration, treatments, nutritional counseling, first aid and symptomatic care.
Please note that we work in partnership with your at-home doctors; we do not replace them.
Our team will collaborate with your at-home physicians to ensure that you receive the medical care you need. This may include coordinating diagnostic testing and obtaining medications for you.
You may find it beneficial to participate in a health class during your stay at HKNC.
The Nurse Practitioner/Registered Nurse will provide customized classes to meet your specific needs. Classes are designed to provide information and skill training in areas related to health and first aid, including medication administration, nutrition, and disease management (diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, etc.).
We want to provide you with the tools needed for your self-care as you achieve optimal health and wellness.
