    Admission Information

    Eastern Shore Hospital Center Admission Information

    All ESHC admissions are processed through the BHA Centralized Admissions.

    Upon arrival, patients are escorted to the Admissions Unit, also known as the Nanticoke Unit. This unit is a 20-bed co-ed unit that is structured to provide a safe and secure environment. Private and semi-private rooms are assigned based on clinical treatment needs, and it may be necessary to change rooms during a patient's hospital stay. In addition to a bed, each patient has a dresser and closet with limited storage. Privacy needs are addressed by privacy curtains that are placed between beds. Also on the unit are separate male and female bathrooms, showers, and tub rooms that are shared by all patients on the unit.

    Common areas of the unit include a kitchen, day halls, visiting rooms, and outdoor courtyard. A pay phone is available on the unit, however the opportunity to use a more private phone will be provided by the unit social worker by request.

    Shortly after admission, each patient has a treatment team assigned to his/her care that includes a physician, nurse, social worker, psychologist, activity therapist, dietitian, and pharmacist. Each patient receives medical attention, including pain management, when needed, and a treatment program is developed according to individualized goals. Each patient is encouraged to work with staff in making a discharge plan centered on recovery and management of one's mental illness.
