Social Services Department
Social Services Department is a resource for patients and their families while receiving care at Northern Inyo Hospital. The Social Worker is available to assess physical, mental and emotional needs of the patient and family members and make appropriate referrals for continued quality care upon discharge from the hospital.
The social work service delivered is determined from the assessment and interactions of the patient and family members. Some of these services include:
Referral to Financial Resources
Arranging for In-Home Care
Coordinating with Assisted Living Facilities and Long Term Care facilities
Leading the adoption process
Connection with Pastoral Counseling
Supportive Services for Family members
Referrals to appropriate local and national resources
Social Services works very closely with agencies and services within Inyo, Mono, and Kern counties and will identify resources outside of the counties upon request from patient or family member.
