We always welcome visitors. Our standard visiting hours are 8am to 8pm. If however, you need to visit outside the typical visiting hours please be considerate of other patients during these times.
We suggest using the common areas of the facility to meet with your loved one. If it is not possible to visit in one of the common areas, we suggest a limit of two people in a resident room at one time.
You may reserve our courtyard for any special event (birthday, holidays, meals) in advance with our front desk.
We encourage children to visit, however, we ask you to alert the charge nurse to anyone visiting the facility under the age 12 and all visitors must follow clinical protocol (when a patient is in isolation) to keep all our patients safe.
Pets can be a good source of therapy and we welcome this positive experience when appropriate. Please talk to us if you feel this would help your loved one.
Physicians generally see patients within 24-48 hours upon admission and once every 30 days thereafter. However, our nursing professionals are in constant contact with all of the physicians that visit the facility. Some insurance companies require that physicians visit more often. Check with our nursing staff for further information.
Patients may have a leave of absence only with MD authorization, which can be arranged through nursing staff. The resident or responsible party upon arrival and departure must sign the LOA (leave of absence) book, located at the nursing stations.
Definitely. Mail is delivered to patients personally on a daily basis except for weekends and holidays.

For the safety and welfare of all patients and staff, Pacific Post-Acute is a non-smoking facility.
We always want our patients to be comfortable; if space permits, small personal items from the resident’s home are always welcome.
Bed linens, hospital gowns and towels are provided and laundered by the facility. If you would prefer to do laundry for your loved one, please inform the charge nurse/social services designee.
We have a beautician available every 2 weeks. Please contact our Social Service designee or stop by the front desk to set up an appointment. Payment for all services is made in advance or at the Beauty Shop during appointments.
Unfortunately, finding parking in Santa Monica is never easy. We have several parking spots for guests and visitors in the rear of the building and other available street parking access is first come first serve.
Consistent with the provision of special diets, always consult with the nursing staff before bringing food to patients. Any food kept in the resident room must be in properly sealed containers.
We recommend approximately five changes of clothing and a pair of comfortable rubber-soled shoes. All articles should be washed, clearly labeled with resident’s name in permanent ink and entered into the patients’ personal inventory log in the medical chart. Other personal items should be marked or engraved for identification. We advise that patients do not keep valuable jewelry or large amounts of cash in the facility.

There is no charge for personal laundry. Families that wish to do their loved ones laundry must bring in a hamper for dirty clothes and ensure laundry is done at least once a week in order to comply with state hygiene regulations.
All personal clothing is washed in an industrial washing machine at a temperature of 180-degrees. Make sure your loved ones clothing is appropriate for washing and drying in these hot temperatures. Clothing that requires cold or warm water or special care is subject to damage and fading. All clothing must be labeled. Please label the clothing with the resident name, NOT the room number or initials. Mark clearly and in large letters on the inside neckline or waistband. All items must be marked including socks, shoes, and other personal items.
Private phone access is available to every resident. Unlimited local and toll free calls can be made from resident phones. An unlimited number of phone calls from any incoming area code (national or international) can be received at the resident phones.
All resident rooms have DirecTV. If you would like to bring in your own television from home, please consult with our maintenance director to ensure proper placement according to county fire codes.
Pacific Post Acute has a vibrant atmosphere with activities that match the capabilities and needs of our residents. We also have active resident and family councils and volunteer programs. Scheduled activities include: music, fitness activities, religious meetings, outside entertainment, games, gardening, field trips/outings and volunteer involvement. If you would like to arrange something special or have suggestions and ideas for individual or group activities, please inform our activities director. We welcome and encourage involvement from family and friends.
Our Rehabilitation staff will work with our residents 7 days a week up to 2 hours a day, depending on the patient’s needs.
Patients must have a Medicare card that reads Hospital Insurance. They must also be admitted to the facility with a physician order within 30 days of a three consecutive night hospital stay. Generally, during the first 20 days of care, Medicare will pay 100%. For days 21-100, a $161.00 daily co-insurance rate is required. Medicare does not cover skilled nursing fees over 100 days.
