- Medical Practitioner
We encourage all residents to enrol with the inhouse general practitioner. However if a resident strongly prefers his/her own general practitioner Nazareth Care will pay $60.00 towards the general practitioners visit.
It is the responsibility of the resident or their representative/ whanau to contact the general practitioner of their choice to request provision of ongoing care. This must be done prior to or on the day of the care recipient joining our community. This will enable a medication chart to be written and an initial assessment being performed. A list of local general practitioners can be provided to assist with decision making.
Nazareth Care policy is that general practitioners are required to review their resident at least once every three (3) months. General practitioners will be notified by care employees of any substantial change of condition or adverse event involving a resident.
A resident and /or legal representative may request a change of general practitioner. It is up to the resident and/or legal representative to inform the current general practitioner that his/her services are no longer required and to contact and engage the services of the new general practitioner of choice.
Employees are not permitted to recommend general practitioners.
