Communication Services

Our goal is to give every patient information in the way that he or she understands best. We offer services to all patients with limited English proficiency, deafness or difficulty hearing or seeing. Children under the age of 18 may not interpret for any family member at any time. Please ask your nurse if you feel these services may be helpful to you or your family.

Discharge

Your doctor will talk with you about your discharge date. If you have questions about your discharge, please ask your doctor or nurse.

Emergency Drills

The hospital conducts many routine safety drills. You may see flashing lights or hear a series of bells or announcements that signal an emergency drill. During these drills your door may be closed. Please stay in your room unless told otherwise by nursing staff.

Lost & Found

To prevent losing your personal items, please label them and keep them by your bedside table. These items can get lost if left in bedding or on food trays. If you lose something, tell your nurse right away. Our security staff will make every attempt to find your item. If we find an item after you leave, we will contact you for pick-up or delivery.

Medical Equipment/Electrical Devices

For your safety, electrical devices or appliances may need to be checked out by our clinical engineering team. Please notify your nurse if you are bringing any of these items into the hospital.

Overnight Accommodations

If family members need to stay overnight, we will try to provide on-site sleeping and shower accommodations. Ask your nurse for more details or for nearby lodging.

The Holiday Day Inn Express is just up the street and offers a special rate for Aurora. If you call for reservations, be sure to mention this offer. The Holiday Inn Express phone number is 920-303-1300.

To reach the hospital from the Holiday Inn Express, head left out of the parking lot at the hotel. You will see the hospital straight ahead of you. At the stop sign, turn left onto Westhaven Drive. Turn right into the hospital parking lot.

Pets

You may be allowed to have your pet visit you in the hospital. Pets need to be healthy and accompanied by responsible adults. Therapy pets through certified and reputable organizations may also be brought into the hospital. Speak with your nurse if you are interested in a pet visit of any kind.

Security Services

For your safety, our property is patrolled 24 hours a day by security officers and electronic surveillance. The security staff can escort you and your visitors to your cars at night if you would like.

Smoke-Free Environment

This hospital is smoke-free. No smoking is allowed anywhere on campus.

Spiritual Care

A volunteer chaplain is here to help you with your spiritual needs. Our on-call chaplain is available 24 hours a day. Everyone is welcome to use the chapel (open 24 hours a day), located on the first floor next to the Intensive Care Unit.

Telephones

Cellular phones may not be used in the hospital. 

Visiting Hours & Policies

We have an open visitation policy. Some medical conditions or scheduled procedures may limit visiting times. Family and friends may call the nursing unit for more information.

Amenities

Financial Counseling

A financial counselor can help if you have concerns about how you will pay your hospital bill. He or she can answer questions about your bill and possible payment options. If you do not have insurance, we will help you find out if you qualify for Medicaid or other assistance programs. If you need help, please call the hospital and ask to speak with the financial counselor. Hospital bill payments may be made Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Online bill payment is available via myAurora.

In our gift shop you’ll find unique gifts, seasonal items, fresh flowers, greeting cards, magazines and candy. Our gift shop is run by a group of wonderful volunteers. Hours of operation may vary. To place an order, call 920-456-7010.

Flowers and Balloons
If flowers arrive for you, we will bring them to your room. Flowers and plants received after discharge will be returned to the florist so they can be sent to your home. Latex balloons are not allowed in the hospital because many people are allergic to latex.
