GENERAL INFORMATION

Patients are admitted to Carilion Stonewall Jackson Hospital in one of two ways: through the hospital‘s emergency department or by their physicians. In either case the hospital makes every effort to provide you with your choice of accommodations. Private rooms are assigned on the basis of availability at the time of your registration, however you can request a transfer from one type of room to another and once a room is available a change can be made.

Important Paperwork

Please bring your insurance cards and a photo ID with you at the time of your registration. If you do not have insurance, our registration team will discuss payment options with you. During the registration process, you will sign the consent to treat form. If you have an advance directive (a living will) or a Durable Power of Attorney, please bring it with you so that we can file a copy in your hospital record.

Personal Items

You will need only a few personal items such as a bathrobe, sleep wear, slippers and toiletries. Please do not bring jewelry, large amounts of money or other valuables to the hospital.

Valuables

If you have items of value, please notify your nurse so that these items can be deposited in the hospital safe during your stay. The hospital cannot be responsible for valuables kept in your room.

For Your Safety

We also ask that for safety reasons, you do not bring any electrical equipment into the hospital. If there is an item that you feel is necessary for your stay to be more comfortable, please notify your nurse and we will make every effort to work with you on having the equipment examined for safety.
