Calling a Patient

- Visitors in semi-private rooms should be considerate of both patients.
- Adults or children with colds, sore throats or any contagious diseases should not visit patients.
- You should avoid unnecessary noise.
- You may be asked to leave the room during tests or treatments or when the doctor or nurse needs to see the patient.
- Visitors should be limited to two at a time, except in extenuating services.
Telephones are provided in each room. Patients may receive calls in their room from 7:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m. Friends and family members can dial a patient’s room directly by dialing 424 and the four digits found on the name plaque above the patient’s bed.
Local calls may be made at any time from the room by dialing “9” and the number. Long-distance calls cannot be charged to the room. You may use a telephone calling card or dial the operator who will connect you to the service provider of your choice to make a collect call. Call the hospital operator by dialing “0” at any time for assistance.
Specific waiting areas have been designated for families of patients in the critical care units, the Emergency Department, Endoscopy, Same Day Care, Special Delivery Unit and the Main Lobby. During certain hours, a guest relations representative is on duty in the Surgery Waiting Room to keep family members informed about the progress of the surgery.
