About Your Stay
Providing superior, quality patient care is at the center of all we do here at South Nassau Communities Hospital. We are dedicated to making your time with us as comfortable as possible, to provide you with the state-of-the-art health care you need, with the compassionate care you deserve.
We’ve put together a checklist to make sure the day of your admission, test or treatment runs as smoothly as possible.
Before your stay:
What to bring with you:
- Your photo identification, such as a driver's license or any other form of picture ID
- Proof of address, such as power or water bill with your address on it
- Any reports your physician gave you to bring to the hospital
- Medical insurance information, including insurance cards, precertification forms and any other documents your insurer requires
- If you are entitled to Medicare benefits, bring your completed Medicare “Secondary Payor Questionnaire”
- Your Social Security card
- A list of names and telephone numbers where members of your immediate family can be reached if necessary
- A list of all medicines and the amount (or dose) you take, including prescriptions, over-the-counter medicines, vitamins and supplements
What to leave at home:
It's best that you not bring any valuables with you to the hospital. This includes jewelry, money, electronic devices, etc. If you bring valuables with you, our Cashier’s Office can hold them for you. And you or your next of kin can pick them up. Note that we need a photo identification to return them.
Understand Your Rights as a Patient
As our patient, you have certain rights and protections guaranteed by state and federal laws. These rights help ensure the quality and safety of your hospital care.
To help you understand these rights, we’ll provide a booklet when you are admitted. We’ll be happy to send this booklet to you ahead of time, too. Just contact the Admitting Office at (516) 632-3990. Ask for the booklet, "Your Rights as a Hospital Patient,” published by the New York State Department of Health and its Consumer Health Information Council.
