Your Hospital Room
Your room has been planned for efficient medical and nursing care in a safe, comfortable environment. Each bed is designed for professional nursing care and is likely narrower and higher than the bed which you are accustomed to at home. Each hospital bed is equipped with a call bell system. Your nurse will instruct you on its use. Television service is provided free of charge in all patient rooms.
The Environmental Services staff is responsible for providing a clean and antiseptic environment for patients. All patient care areas are cleaned daily.
Mail, Newspapers, Flowers
Mail may be addressed to you at the hospital address. Mail is delivered daily except on weekends. Any mail delivered after your discharge will be forwarded to your home address. Please encourage use of your full name to assure accurate delivery.
Newspapers are available in the Gift Shop or may be delivered to your room upon request.
Flowers are delivered to patient rooms as soon as they arrive. Flowers are not allowed in the intensive care units. They will be sent home with your family/friend or held for you until you are transferred to a nursing unit.
