We provide personalized care
From the moment you select Millcreek Manor, our medical team becomes acquainted and involved
in the care of your loved one. Our staff and medical director work closely with the chosen
attending physician to design an individualize care plan that is best suited to meet the needs of
your loved one. We encourage all of our residents, families, and friends to become active
participants in the care planning process. Our nursing programs include services such as:
intravenous therapy, hydration therapy, post-operative care, wound care management, pain
management, hospice care, and comprehensive restorative nursing care.
Nursing care offers a level of care that must be supervised by a registered nurse. Examples of
skilled nursing care include: intravenous injections, tube feeding, and changing sterile dressings
on wounds. This care requires a coordinated effort between nursing, rehabilitation, dietary, and
activities departments to maintain the highest level of independence for each resident.
- General nursing care is designed for residents who require assistance with activities
of daily living and nursing supervision. Care is ordered by the attending physician and supervised
by a registered or licensed practical nurse. Certified nursing assistants then provide individual
assistance for residents with their activities of daily living.
At Millcreek Manor, a
registered nurse coordinates a comprehensive assessment for every resident, which involves
evaluation and input by the physician, nurses, dietician, rehabilitation therapist, social worker,
and activity staff. This comprehensive assessment is used to develop and implement an
individualized plan of care for each resident. Plans of care are reviewed and updated by the
interdisciplinary team on a regular basis and residents and their families are invited to attend
and participate in meetings to review the plans of care.
