Inpatient Day Room
The first facility of its type in Vermont, the Day Room provides patients with a warm, family style environment where they can enjoy activities, eat meals and socialize. Staffed by a registered nurse, a licensed nursing assistant and volunteers, the Day Room offers patients the opportunity to receive their prescribed medical care outside of their hospital room – safely and with dignity.
The Day Room staff help patients with routine care and toileting. They also provide supervision and evaluation of patients. The Day Room is attractively furnished and includes a kitchen facility and a special consult room where patients and families can meet with their doctor. Patients can also receive services such as physical and occupational therapy.
