– NEW ARRIVALS/ORIENTATION
Your first few days at the Center will be busy ones. After your admission, you will be oriented about the program in depth. You will be given a tour of the residence and introduced to the staff and to other residents. Then you will be assigned a room and given your own key. Courtesy, honesty and respect for yourself and others as well as this facility will be expected. You will be assigned a Residence Advisor who will be responsible for working with you and overseeing your progress throughout your stay. You will work along with your Residence Advisor to create and review a personalized program plan. Any questions, comments or concerns should be directed to the Residence Advisor.
Our program is located on the SARTA Bus Route and you will be able to obtain bus schedules.
– HEALTH & SAFETY
You are required to give a full disclosure of your known medical condition and, if necessary, sign a release of information form to obtain your medical history. Failure to tell staff about your medical state could result in removal from the program.
All health care matters need to be addressed using a “Medical Request” form. Fill out all information completely and turn into staff. This includes any request for over-the-counter drugs such as aspirin and antacids, hospital visits, and doctor’s appointments. All injuries or illnesses should be reported to staff as soon as possible. This action will help to protect you. An emergency medical transportation unit (ambulance) will be contacted to transport you to the hospital. In an emergency situation, you will be able to go to the hospital of your choice at your own expense. Non-emergency medical conditions need to be discussed with staff immediately to schedule health care and dental appointments.
ALL MEDICAL CO-PAYS, IF ANY, ARE THE CLIENTS’ FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITY. PLEASE KEEP A BALANCE ON YOUR ACCOUNT FOR THIS PURPOSE.
All medications must have your name on them. Residents are not allowed to trade medication or take each other’s medicine. Narcotics are not allowed in the building or program. First Aid kits are located in various places I the residence. Contact a staff member immediately if you are in need of first aid or if you are aware of someone else in need of first aid.
*While a resident of CRCS, you may not participate in medical, pharmaceutical, or cosmetic experiments. This does not include individual treatment from your physician with a new medical procedure, with full explanation of the positive and negative features of the treatment. You may agree to have a new medical procedure as long as the treatment is not part of a general program of medical experimentation involving payment to you. All medical documentation must be submitted to staff before beginning treatment.
