Making a Referral
You can make a referral to HSC by calling (202) 635-6115 and by faxing a face sheet including reason for referral to (202)635-6150. When we receive the referral we will check the insurance coverage and begin to assess the patient for readiness for admission to HSC. We will request and review medical record documentation such as:
- Medical Discharge Summary
- Nursing Discharge Summary
- Rehabilitation Services Summary
- Social Work Notes or Summary
- Consultation Notes
- Recent Progress Notes
- Current Lab Results
The patient will be discussed in our admissions team meeting to assess the patient’s readiness for admission and to assure that all disciplines have made preparation prior to the patient’s arrival.
In order to ensure a smooth transition for the patient and family, we ask that you continue to communicate with us and with the family including MD to MD and Nurse to Nurse reports on the day of transfer.
