Our entire pre-admission screening process values a patient-centered approach. Tully Hill is committed to providing person-centered care that reflects the patient’s values, culture and beliefs, and that incorporates the unique strengths, needs, abilities and preferences of the patient as well as identified challenges and potential solutions.
At Tully Hill, to effectively treat and care for every patient we need to get as much information about the patient as possible before we evaluate and admit them.
That’s why we always ask for any current clinical or medical treatment information about a patient from referral sources when they refer someone. It’s also why our Intake Specialists in Admissions need to screen each and every person being referred or who is referring themselves.
Pre-admission screening services are available 24 hours-a-day, seven (7) days-a-week. Our Intake Specialists in Admissions conduct screenings from 8 a.m.-4:15 p.m., Monday through Friday. Screenings done after 4:15 p.m. Monday through Thursday and from 4:15 p.m. Friday to 8 a.m. the following Monday are conducted by our off-hours screening service staff which conveys its information to our weekday Intake staff for follow-up the very next business day.
Why Do We Need This Information?
Carrying out both of these steps provides us with the following information that’s essential to our goal of providing superior treatment and care:
- Complete demographic, insurance coverage, and current addiction(s) and history
- Patient’s current medical status and history including medication use
- Addiction treatment history
- Employment status
- Past and current legal issues
Our Screening process includes the following simple steps.
