Thank you for considering Isabella's Nursing Home. If you are looking for an environment that will provide the best care possible for a loved one, Isabella has a lot to offer and we encourage you to speak with our Admissions team who can answer specific questions related to the type of care we provide.
In order to begin the application process for admission to Isabella, a Patient Review Instrument (PRI) form must be completed. For those applicants who are applying for admission directly from a hospital or another nursing facility, the social worker at that facility will complete the form and will forward it to Isabella.
For those applicants who are applying from the local community, a community physician or other medical professional will complete the form on behalf of the intended resident.
We suggest that a family member be present at the time the Patient Review Instrument (PRI) is being completed.
A community PRI and screen will be valid for 90 days from the date of completion. If the applicant has not been admitted within that time, an update of these forms will need to be done.
Once completed, a copy of the Patient Review Instrument (PRI) should be faxed to us at 1-800-581-3801.
After the PRI and Screen have been reviewed and medically accepted, the designated person will be contacted to obtain personal and financial information. For applicants in the community, further medical information will also be requested from your primary physician.
When all of the above is in order and an appropriate bed is available, arrangements for admission will be made as soon as possible thereafter.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Isabella’s Admissions Office at 212-342-9245 or 800-581-4474 or click here to send us a message.
