Admission Process

The application form will not be accepted until the applicant's primary care Physician, with admitting privileges at Lompoc Valley Medical Center: Hospital has been verified.

Categories of Admission

There are three categories of individuals desiring admission

  • Active Status

    Applicant desires immediate admission. CCC will notify applicant or representative when accommodations are available.

  • In-Active Status

    Applicant desires future admission. Applicant or representative will notify CCC when they desire to be on active status.

  • Waiting List

    Applicant's name will be placed on the waiting list based on the date the application was received and whether or not they are active status or inactive status. The date received always determines the place on the waiting list.

Admission Date

It is difficult to accurately predict an admission date as an applicant may move from inactive status to active status. Therefore, counting those ahead of the applicant on the waiting list is an effective tool for estimating an admission date.

Admission Inquiry and Response

When an active status applicant's name reaches the top of the waiting list, the CCC will notify applicant or representative when accommodations are available and inquire about applicant's desire for immediate admission. Response to this inquiry within 24 hours after contact is important or the next applicant on the waiting list will be contacted.

Applicant may accept admission when contacted and the admission process will begin with an assessment to ensure that the CCC can meet the applicant's needs. Admission is then likely to occur within the next two to three days. The applicant may decline admission when contacted if they do not desire admission at that time and may be asked to place the application on inactive status. The applicant or representative would be responsible to notify the CCC when they desire to be on active status. The original application date received will remain the same even if applicant declines admission or if applicant is admitted for a time and later discharged.

Having an application on file does not guarantee admission.
