General Patient Information
While you're a patient at Coshocton Regional Medical Center, it's
not only your quality medical care that stands as a high priority for
us. We also care about your comfort and emotional well-being. Every member
of your health care team stands as a resource for you when you have questions
or have any need that isn't being met.
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.
After you return home, you may receive a confidential patient satisfaction
survey in the mail. Achieving high scores on these surveys is extremely
important to our staff, and your answers and comments help us recognize
every opportunity to improve your experience at Coshocton Regional Medical
Center. If you receive a survey, please take a moment to complete and
If you wish to speak with a chaplain, please ask a member of the nursing
staff to contact one; Coshocton Regional Medical Center has a chaplain
on call 24-hours-a-day. 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. We offer
a specialized discharge nurse who will work with you throughout your stay
to make sure you are well prepared to continue your recovery after your
discharge. Our case managers are also available to work with you to arrange
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 discharge nurse will keep you informed and will contact
your case manager as necessary to make your discharge as smooth as possible.
During your stay at Coshocton Regional Medical Center, we recognize how
important your family and friends can be to your recovery. If you have
a special request for a loved one to be with you beyond the normal visiting
hours, please talk with your nurse and we can make the appropriate accommodations.
We do reserve the right to limit visitation if your condition requires it.
