Patient & Community Education
The purpose of patient education is to provide a general knowledge base to each patient regarding his or her specific condition. The educational process takes place on a one-to-one basis between the patient and/or family and the educator, and includes the use of audiovisual aids, booklets, and discussion. If you have any questions or if you desire additional information, please ask your nurse. Patient education is offered daily in the hospital on channel 16. Call the
Education Department at 249-1538 for more information.
Education on various patient safety issues is available throughout the hospital. Information on hand washing is available in many areas and at waterless hand washing stations located in patient care areas.
