Kindred Hospital uses an interdisciplinary team approach to care that helps our patients return to the highest quality of life possible. In addition to our core services, we offer:
When illness or surgery adversely affects a patient’s stomach or digestive system, we administer medication and nutrition through a PICC (Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter) or a PEG (Percutaneous Endoscopic Gastrostomy) until the patient recovers.
Brain injuries can be as sudden as they are devastating. Our interdisciplinary approach to caring for patients age 18 and older with brain injuries includes all aspects of rehabilitation and recovery.
Transitioning to the next level of care or home following a stay at Kindred Hospital Westminster can be frightening to our patients and families. Our case managers work with patients and families helping to prepare them for the transition. We also have interdisciplinary team meetings each week during the hospitalization to help communicate the progress and needs of our patients.
Skilled and certified technicians operate our imaging equipment, and we make every effort to perform the testing in as prompt and as convenient a manner as possible.
For your convenience, our hospital accepts direct admissions from an extended care facility or skilled nursing center.
An endoscope is a flexible, lighted tube that, when inserted into the digestive system, transmits images of the inside of the esophagus, stomach and duodenum, allowing the physician to carefully examine the lining of these organs. Our Endoscopy team works to make you as comfortable as possible before, during and after the procedure.
Our interdisciplinary team of geriatric specialists includes physicians, rehabilitation therapists, dietitians and mental-health professionals. Their objective is to help our senior patients live life to its fullest.
Our infectious disease physicians and staff work together to minimize and manage infections, to assure the highest standards in isolation precautions are utilized and to provide the safest and most effective therapies. We take infection control very seriously and require compliance from all that enter the hospital.
Occupational medicine is devoted to prevention and management of occupational and environmental injury, illness and disability.
Palliative care is designed for patients with active, advanced disease and a short life expectancy. The focus of care is to prevent or relieve symptoms and to do everything possible to improve the patient’s quality of life.
The aim of our pulmonary rehab team is to determine your capacity for respiratory recovery and then help you reach your fullest level of function. Our rehab regimen includes testing, education, breathing retraining and nutritional counseling.
Your clinical treatment is the chief responsibility of your physician. As a member of the medical staff, your physician makes the necessary arrangements for laboratory services, X-rays, medications, special diets and any other treatment or service.
Nursing services are provided around the clock to meet each patient’s unique needs. Through the Department of Nursing, care plans are created in conjunction with physicians, therapists and specialists in other disciplines.
Under the direction of the medical staff, our team of respiratory therapists evaluates, treats and manages patients with cardiopulmonary problems. They also provide preventive care.
Using advanced equipment, the radiology staff performs a variety of X-rays and diagnostic services that play an important role in diagnosing many illnesses.
Surgical services are available for our patients. If necessary, for some specialty procedures, patients may be transferred to another facility.
Operating under the direction of a physician, the laboratory is responsible for conducting any tests that are ordered. Our advanced equipment performs tests accurately and quickly, with results available on the same day whenever possible.
An integral part of the patient care team is our staff of licensed pharmacists. They prepare medications and provide special dietary supplements necessary for proper nutrition.
The goal of our dietitian is to strive to meet your nutritional needs and prepare diets as ordered by your physician. The dietitian also performs periodic nutritional assessments and monitors your nutrition plan. Please make the dietitian aware of your food preferences and any food allergies you may have.
At Kindred Hospital Westminster our Case Management and Social Services departments work concomitantly in planning care for patients and their families throughout the hospital stay and post discharge. These departments provide a wide range of services – including financial counseling, grief counseling, family conferences, and discharge planning including referrals to community agencies and securing medical equipment for home use. Family members are invited and encouraged to take part in the care planning for their family members.
There are chaplains on standby to assist you and your family with any needs or concerns. Your minister is also welcome to visit at any time.
