Resident Care Services

Physicians

Meadowood Manor has two attending physicians.  Following admission, one of the physicians will be assigned to each new Resident. Upon arriving at Meadowood Manor, the Resident will undergo an initial physical conducted by the physician.  Clinical appointments and consultations with various health professionals may be scheduled when ordered by the doctor. The physicians visit the home once a week, and see the Resident according to their individual needs.  Full physical examinations are completed every two years. Physicians are able to be consulted 24/7.

Nurses

Twenty-four (24) hour nursing care is provided for all Residents.

Staffing is allocated according to the general level of care needs on each floor and in accordance with WRHA requirements.

Medications are dispensed by our nursing staff at regularly scheduled times as prescribed by the physician. Over-the-counter medications are not permitted and we ask for the cooperation of family members and friends in not bringing these into the home.

Pharmacy

Medications are ordered though the Manitoba Long Term Care Provincial Pharmacy program.  Most medications for Residents are covered under thePersonal Care Home program as an insured benefit for Residents of Manitoba.
