About Your Stay
If you are not on a restricted diet, the Nutrition Services Department is able to provide you with a Room Service tray. This complimentary meal tray is offered to our patients. However, your guests may also order a tray from our cafeteria if they would like to join you. Guests would need to pay for their meal.
In keeping with our mission of healing, Morehouse General Hospital is a smoke-free campus. There is no smoking anywhere in the hospital or anywhere on our hospital grounds. Patients who smoke should discuss the issue with their physician prior to admission. Informaiton about smoking cessation is available to any paitent upon request.
Patient rooms are furnished with telephones and equipped with television sets that you may use at no charge. Each set comes with a private speaker to ensure that the volume can be kept low.
At this time WiFi Internet is not available in our patient rooms.
Cellular phones can interfere with life support equipment; please leave them at home.
We want you to feel as much at home as possible during your hospital stay...pack using these few suggestions:
- The hospital provides nearly everything you need for your stay. You may wish to bring pajamas or a nightgown, robe, slippers, toothpaste, deodorant or other personal toiletries articles and a list of medications you are taking.
- We expect you will want to bring items such as dentures, hearing aids or eyeglasses. The nurse can give you a protective container to hold dentures. Please avoid wrapping your dentures or hearing aids in a napkin or tissue or placing them on your meal tray, under your pillow or in a tissue box. They may be mistaken for trash and thrown away.
- For safety reasons, we ask that you not bring any plug-in electrical appliances to the hospital. This includes shavers, radios, cassette players, hair dryers and rollers. You may bring battery-operated appliances, but you will need to provide your own batteries.
- All jewelry and other valuables—significant amounts of money, credit cards, personal checks— should be left at home.
- The hospital is not responsible for loss of dentures, eyeglasses, hearing aids, other personal items or cash.
- For patients with a legal guardian, conservator or power of attorney, a copy of that document should be brought to the hospital when admitting a patient. If you have an advance directive, such as a living will, a health care agent or power of attorney, bring a copy with you.
