Description of Care Levels
CSNC 1 — the patient may need some assistance at times, but can take care of most needs with possible exception of taking a shower and daily bed making.
CSNC 2 & 3 — the patient is usually ambulatory, though may need assistance with personal care and dressing, may need supervision, generally able to carry out own activities during day or attend group activities.
CSNC 4 & 5 — the patient may be non-ambulatory, may require lifting assistance from one or two Christian Science nurses or by mechanical lifter, may require feeding.
CSNC 6 —the patient’s Christian Science nursing care needs require the skills of a Journal-listed Christian Science Nurse (JLCSN) in some way: direct care of the patient, judgment regarding care, establishing the plan of care, supervision of other CS nurses providing care, teaching patient or family to provide correct care for patient. Situations which usually call for involvement by a JLCSN include: care of a patient who has injured a limb, is confined to bed, is not retaining food, has a wound that needs to be cared for, or is having significant physical difficulty, etc.
NOTE: If a patient requires substantially more time than what is included in level of care, Wide Horizon reserves the right to charge $60 per hour for additional Christian Science nursing care than noted in respective level or move the patient to another level as appropriate. Wide Horizon will do its best to notify patient/family prior to charging for additional CS nursing hours when this situation occurs.
Regardless of the level of care, there is always an expectation of spiritual progress and healing.
“The prayer that reforms the sinner and heals the sick is an absolute faith that all things are possible to God, — a spiritual understanding of Him, an unselfed love.”
Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 1
