Visitors

We know how important it is to have family and friends with you during your hospital stay. However, your recovery is always our first concern.

Unless your physician restricts visitors, your family and friends may visit you during the hours listed below. Children under 12 are not permitted in patient care areas except when accompanied by an adult. Following this guideline will help ensure that you get the rest you need.

 

Visiting Hours

Friend Healthcare Solutions has an open visitation policy to provide patients with visitation options that work best for them, their families and loved ones.

Visitors are welcome 24 hours a day. Our nursing staff will work with patients and visitors around visitation. Children are welcome to visit when accompanied by an adult. In certain patient care areas, including the Surgery Center and the Emergency Department, visitors are requested to check with the nurse for the visitation procedure. Patient care is our first priority, so there may be times when visitors may be asked to step out of the patient’s room.

 

Visitor Parking

Parking is free and available in north and west sides of Friend Healthcare Solutions. If you require overnight parking or have a recreational vehicle or other oversized vehicle, please contact the main office at 402-947-2541.

 

Patient Condition Information

We understand that your family and friends are concerned about you and want to be kept informed about your condition. To help limit the number of calls to our nurses, we ask that you make arrangements to have one family member or friend call the nurses’ station responsible for your care to ask about you. They can then share that information with other family members and friends.

 

Food Service

The cafeteria is open every day for the convenience of visitors and staff. Hours are:

  • Breakfast – 7:00 a.m. – 8:30 a.m.
  • Lunch – 11:00 a.m.-1:00 a.m.
  • Dinner – 5:00 p.m.-6:30 p.m.

Vending machines are located near the Emergency Department waiting room where beverages and snacks may be purchased 24-hours a day. The vending machines provide change for $1 bills.

With doctor approval, you may bring food (except for home-canned food) to the patient you are visiting. There are no cooking facilities available to patients and visitors at the hospital, and storage space for food items is limited.

 

Lounges

Waiting areas for visitors are located near almost every patient area.

 

Safety & Security

Identification badges are worn by all Friend Healthcare Solutions employees and volunteers.  The badge shows the person’s name and photo, title or position, and the name of the department or unit.

 

Smoking

Please remind your visitors of our smoking policy. Smoking is allowed only in designated areas outside the hospital.
