For Patients & Visitors

Whether you’re a hospital patient or simply visiting the hospital, please do not hesitate to ask any Coshocton Regional Medical Center employee – recognizable by our name badges – if you need directions or other assistance. If the employee you approach doesn’t have the information you need, he or she will guide you to someone who can help.

If you’re visiting a patient, please understand that the care of your loved one is our primary concern. We ask that you assist us by following the guidelines we’ve established to maintain a safe, quiet and comfortable atmosphere for our patients.

Since we are also concerned for your comfort as a visitor, here is some general information about our hospital. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to speak with any of our Coshocton Regional Medical Center staff members.

For Our Patients

Confused About a Medication or Procedure?

If you are scheduled for a procedure you don’t quite understand, or want to know more about a new medication you’re taking, our nurses can provide you with the information you need. Your nurse can provide you with printed information about procedures, medications, dietary restrictions, nutritional information, appropriate exercise, diseases and conditions and more. You will receive some of informational materials in your patient folder, but if you have more information, simply ask and your nurse can get you the answers you need.

Chaplain

If you wish to speak with a chaplain, please ask a member of the nursing staff to contact one. You are also welcome to visit our chapel, located outside the emergency department on the first floor.

Preparing for Your Discharge

From the moment you’re admitted to the hospital, your health care team is preparing for you to be ready for discharge to your residence or to a rehabilitation facility to complete your recuperation. Included in that team are our case managers who will visit you during your stay to help coordinate plans for your eventual discharge from the hospital, such as arranging for medical supplies or home health assistance to help you complete your care.

As your discharge time nears, your physician will complete the discharge orders. Often those orders require the completion of final tests or additional medication, all of which will need to be completed before your discharge can happen. Your nurse will keep you informed and will contact your case manager as necessary to make your discharge as smooth as possible.
