Patient Resources

Nursing UnitWhether you're a patient or a patient's family, we're here for you before and during a hospital stay, and even after the patient goes home.

While here, you may hear about "Ask Me 3." Ask Me 3 is a patient-education program designed to improve communication between patients and their healthcare providers, encourage patients to become active members of their healthcare team, and promote improved health outcomes.

At Sky Lakes, the program encourages patients to ask their nurses and physicians three questions:

  • What is my main problem?
  • What do I need to do?
  • Why is it important for me to do this?

Studies show that people who understand health instructions make fewer mistakes when they take their medicine or prepare for a medical procedure. They may also get well sooner or be able to better manage a chronic health condition. A link to an informative video is below.

If you or a loved one needs continued skilled care outside the hospital, transportation, special medical equipment, or other needs, Sky Lakes Resource Management is here to help.

Our specialists can help you with crisis intervention, or to help you meet your emotional needs following a "life event." Please feel to call us at 541-274-6282.

Helping people is what we do.
