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. Pet shot records are required and kept on file.
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.
