Your Accommodations

To Call Your Nurse

Our bedside communication system makes it possible for you to talk with nurses at the nursing station from your bed. You will also find a call button in the bathroom should you need assistance. Your nurse will show you how to use these convenient devices.

Your Room

Your physical surroundings are just as important in the hospital as they are in your own home so we have tried to make them as comfortable as possible. If the type of room you requested is not available when you are admitted, please advise your nurse. We will make the necessary arrangements to switch you when such a room becomes available.

Your Bed

Your bed is operated electrically. Your nurse will show you how to raise and lower it.

The Bedside Cabinet

To avoid belongings being lost, please be sure to store items such as eyeglasses, contact lenses, hearing aids and dentures in the cabinet next to your bed.

Cribs

Side rails on your child's crib should be kept in an upright position at all times, unless you are standing next to the crib.

Private Rooms

Private rooms may or may not be available. When available, an additional ten dollars per day will be charged for the private room.

Using Your Television

For your enjoyment, we feature a variety of local cable channels. Refer to the cable channels guide at your bedside stand. Television services are provided free of charge.

Meals

Menus are distributed on a daily basis. If you need assistance, a dietetic technician will assist you with menu selections and answer any food and nutrition questions you may have.

Newspapers

The Green Bay Press-Gazette, Green Bay News-Chronicle and USA Today are available from coin-operated machines just off the South Elevators near the cafeteria on the third floor. The Green Bay Press-Gazette is also available from a coin-operated machine near the Clinicare entrance, or it can be delivered to your room. Please check with your nurse. The Green Bay News-Chronicle is available free of charge at your nurses station.
