Advanced Care Planning
When you are admitted to a Bon Secours hospital, our policy is to ask you if you have Advance Medical Directive. This routine procedure enables our staff to insure that your wishes for your own medical treatment are respected. A chaplain will gladly answer your questions pertaining to Advanced Care Planning and help you execute am Advanced Medical Directive should you so desire. This service is free and requires no notary.
Interpreter and Translation Services
Language interpretation is available via telephone for patients who need it. Let a member of your care team know that you require an interpreter and we will be happy to initiate connecting you to one via a conference call.
For Our Patients with Special Needs
We will take every step necessary to help accommodate our patients with hearing, vision, or other physical impairments. Please ask any member of your care team for assistance.
