Inpatient Care FAQs

Answers to Common Questions About Inpatient Care at KMC

How long will my stay be?

Most patients stay for a short amount of time but can range from a few days to a few weeks or more. Your length of stay is determined by your treatment needs and your progress. Your participation will impact your progress, so commitment to your care plan is an important factor in your length of stay as well.

Am I allowed to have visitors?

Yes you are. You are allowed to designate a family member or caregiver as your bedside companion and we will provide basic accommodations for them to remain with you through the entirety of your stay. We allow this as it’s often a great opportunity for your support system to become more familiar with your care needs. Our staff will gladly provide caregiver training when needed.

Will my insurance cover my stay?

Most insurance carriers do cover a percentage of inpatient stays. Financial assistance options are also available.

What if I don't like the food?

While we agree that hospital food doesn’t always have the best reputation, our Dietary Department is renowned for serving up meals with a home-cooked feel. However, if you are not satisfied with the food you are welcome to have a visitor bring you something from outside the facility. We only ask that outside food align with your therapeutic diet needs to optimize your body’s ability to heal.
