For Your Comfort
Patient rooms come with several free television channels and free local phone service. Mail, flowers, and gifts are delivered daily, except Sundays. At Wayne Memorial Hospital, we think knowing what to expect might help make your stay more comfortable. Below is some general information about your room and amenities.
Wayne Memorial Hospital offers free wireless Internet access for patients and visitors. Simply bring up the list of available networks detected by your laptop, and select waynecia for access. This is a separate network dedicated to guest users, which preserves internal security and ensures that no confidential information is accessible.
Except in special care units, there are bedside phones in all patient rooms. A patient’s room number corresponds to the phone number. To reach a patient room directly, dial 919.580.1 + room number.
Patients may call out from their room 24 hours a day. Dial 8 or 9 for an outside line. However, from 9 p.m. to 7 a.m., incoming patient calls are switched to the hospital operator. Emergency calls are forwarded to the nurses’ station during these hours. All local calls are free. Long-distance calls must be collect, charged to a home phone number or charged to a credit card.
Cell phones may interfere with medical equipment such as heart monitors, IV pumps and ventilators and are not permitted within three feet of patient-care equipment. We ask that your visitors please cooperate with Hospital staff if asked to turn a cell phone off. They may be directed to a location less sensitive to medical equipment if necessary.
