---We the people of Laguna Honda Hospital (staff, residents and volunteers) in order to give the taxpayer his fair shake in all-of-this provides that we will all do the best job possible to create a therapeutic environment that bespeaks ‘’wellness’’ at every turn.
---Our objective is to get the best from each resident as they are maintained in our hallowed halls. We realize that each patient/resident is equipped differently and brings his own set of needs and preferences with him, for better or for worse. He/she is pointed toward improving the quality of his/her life…no matter what that may be.
---It is understood and accepted that the staff and volunteers are here to best make that happen (for the resident/patient) in a way that brings results and that are agreed upon by the parties concerned. That includes the resident/patient himself unless a different course of action is in play (conservator, etc.)
---We understand and accept that a certain amount of funds are set aside for this purpose. The funding is used to create that aforementioned therapeutic environment.
---The purpose of this document is to clarify our purposes for being here in the first place and to make a harmonious environment through our interactions that has ''therapeutic'' as a common goal.
