Q: How long will I be at the Hoeger House?

A: Each individual situation is different and there are many factors that play a part in your recovery. There are some important criteria that Medicare and other insurance companies look at when determining the length of insurance coverage:

  • Has the patient’s prior functional level been obtained?
  • Has the patient’s therapy progress plateaued?
  • Is the patient routinely refusing to participate in therapy?

If the answer to any of the above questions is “yes,” the patient’s stay would normally end. Though patients will be notified of their progress throughout their stay, each person will receive at least 48-hour notice in writing that their insurance or Medicare coverage will be ending.

Q: How often will I see a doctor?

A: At Hoeger House, the nurses are in daily phone contact with our doctor or nurse practitioner as needed.  State regulations state that the doctor will make a personal visit within the first month, however it is common practice for the visit to occur more quickly after admission – often within the first week to 10 days.  In addition to our doctor, a nurse practitioner will be on-site daily M-F and will visit patients typically every week or more often as needed.

Q: What if the house doctor is not my physician?

A: Patients are allowed to have their primary care physician follow them throughout their time at Hoeger House; however most will not make the visits to see their patients. If they are willing to come out to Hoeger House and are licensed through the state of Kansas, that would be acceptable.

Q: What if I need to leave Hoeger House for a doctor’s appointment or outing?

A: Speak to your nurse before scheduling any appointments. Hoeger House is required to coordinate your care if your stay is being paid for by Medicare or other insurance. As a professional courtesy, we only accept orders from the doctor of record here at Hoeger House. Outings may only be scheduled after ALL therapy sessions have been completed for the day.

Q: What will my schedule be?

A: While we like to adapt our schedule to yours, we do need to get your therapy sessions in during therapy hours. You and your therapist can set your schedule to best meet your needs. Each patient will typically have a therapy session in the morning and a session in the afternoon at least five days a week, but this is dependent on your physician’s orders.

Q: When can I have visitors?

A: Visitors are welcome anytime, however we ask that you do not have visitors during your therapy session. An exception might be if an appointment has been set to work with or teach family members. We are dedicated to your recovery and want your therapy sessions maximized at all times. The front door is the only door that remains unlocked between 7 a.m. – 9 p.m. The door is locked from 9 p.m. – 7 a.m.; however, there is a door bell that can be used to alert nurses of the need for entry.
