For Patients | Partners in Care

Our health care team is committed to making your stay with us as safe as possible. In order for this to happen we are asking you and your family to partner with us so we can provide you with the best possible care.

Ways you can contribute to your health care plan:

  • Ask your caregivers to confirm their identity and yours before they administer medications or initiate treatments.
  • Ask questions about your daily goals, tests and discharge plans.
  • Our goal is to facilitate your discharge by 10a.m. Please help us meet this goal by arranging for transportation in advance.
  • Make lists of questions to help you get all the information you need.
  • Request assistance getting out of bed or walking if you feel weak or are getting up for the first time after a procedure or surgery.
  • Tell caregivers about the medications and /or herbal supplements you are taking and your home routine for taking them. Be sure to include any allergies or reactions to medications or food.
  • Ask us to review your current medication orders and explain any changes we have made.
  • Speak up if a situation seems out-of- the- ordinary.
  • Clarify all discharge instructions with your caregivers.
  • We ask that you choose one spokesperson as a contact to communicate with the hospital.
