NURSING HOME | LONG TERM CARE FACILITY | HOSPITAL SIGNINGS

 

 If I am needed to notarize a document for a signer that is in a hospital, nursing home, or long-term care facility, I am aware that it may already be a difficult or stressful situation. I want to make the signing experience for the signer as stress-free and easy as possible. To accomplish that, there are a few rules that I have set in place to ensure a smooth and easy signing. 

 

HOSPITALS

 

  • The signer must be alert and aware of what is going on before the notarization can be completed. 

  • All medications that would inhibit cognitive awareness must be withheld for an hour prior to my arrival. 

  • If I suspect any version of pressure or coercion of the signer, the room must be cleared of all non-medical personnel. 

  • Appointments should NOT be scheduled during shift changes. Please be mindful of the hospital staff schedule. 

  • ID verification of the signer is important, and it must be valid (NOT EXPIRED)

  1. A passport, driver's license or government-issued nondriver identification card, which is current and unexpired.

  2. Another form of government identification issued to an individual, which is current.

  3. Contains the signature or a photograph of the individual.

  • The signer must have everything ready “before” my arrival (documents & valid ID). This process should take no longer than 15 minutes.

  • >15 minute it will be a charge of $1.00 a minute for additional time.
