The GHBC Clinic, located on the first floor of the Crossroads, handles minor health issues and assists with the health concerns of residents. The Nurse Practitioner serves as the Clinic Coordinator. Services are handled by registered nurses in the Clinic who assist and advise residents in making decisions regarding their health care. They provide health assessments and treatments that do not require the services of a physician. The Clinic nurse also acts as a liaison between the resident and his/her physician and can also advise/recommend the need to involve other health care professionals.
The Nurse Practitioner is available by appointment to see residents who are experiencing a change in medical condition. The Nurse Practitioner can diagnose, treat, and prescribe medications in the same way a physician can. The fee for this service will be billed to Medicare and your supplemental insurance company.
Medical Records. Medical Records sends each resident his/her medical information sheet annually to give the resident an opportunity to update the information. The updated information sheet must be returned to the clinic.
Inova Lab comes daily. Lab tests ordered by physicians can be filled at GHBC. Blood draws are at 6:30 a.m. on the 3rd floor of the Crossroads and in the Clinic Exam/Lab Room Monday, Wednesday, and Friday between 8:30 and 9:15 a.m. Most results come back the same day and are forwarded to the referring physician.
Medical Meal trays (meals delivered on a tray to apartments with delivery fee waived) can be arranged with approval of the clinic nurse.
