Wireless Internet Access
Wireless Internet connection is no longer just a perk of hotels and coffee shops. Ste. Genevieve County Memorial Hospital offers patients and visitors complimentary wireless Internet access in the hospital. This allows patients and family members to use their personal mobile devices (laptops, cellphones, tablets, etc.) to stay in touch with family members and friends during their stay.
Patient Phone Calls
Patients may place outgoing calls 24 hours a day. To avoid interrupting their rest, incoming calls to patient rooms are accepted between 7 am and 10 pm as long as the patient is not receiving treatment.
We are committed to patient privacy and confidentiality. Our confidentiality policy allows patients to choose who receives details about their health condition. The patient lists to whom information may be given and this is strictly enforced.
Many patients have weakened immune systems that make them very susceptible to a variety of illnesses. People who are ill with a cold, fever, diarrhea, flu, or a communicable disease should not come into the hospital. In addition, children who have been exposed to chicken pox, measles, mumps, pinkeye, or rubella should not visit patients in the hospital.
We wish to protect all our patients, visitors, and staff from infections and communicable diseases. For this reason the staff follows precautions to prevent the spread of organisms (germs) from all patients, not just patients who have infections or communicable diseases. These precautions may include hand washing, the use of alcohol wash and special clothing such as gloves, gowns, etc. A sign on the patient’s door will notify visitors if they should speak with the attending nurse about special precautions before entering the room.
Patient's guest are welcome in the hospital cafeteria from 7:30 am to 6 pm seven days a week. Breakfast items are served from 7:30 - 8:30 am. Lunch is available from 11:15 am to 1:15 pm.
