Barton Memorial Hospital Patient Guide

Your Accommodations

Your Hospital Room

Your room assignment at Barton Memorial Hospital is based on your admitting diagnosis and the bed availability on the day of your admission. We make an effort to honor your preference. There are times when your treatment or room availability may make your choice unavailable.

Your Bed

Hospital beds are electrically operated, and your nurse will show you how to work your bed properly. Your hospital bed is probably higher and narrower than your bed at home. Bedside rails are for your protection. They may be raised at night or during the day if you are resting, recovering from surgery or taking certain medications. The head of your hospital bed may be raised to help support your respiratory health.

Calling Your Nurse

A caregiver call button is located at the bedside. When you press the button, the nurses’ station is alerted that you need assistance and a light flashes above your door. A nurse will respond to your room or answer by intercom.

Cell Phone/ Telephone / Internet

Cell Phone Use

Cell phones may be used in most areas of the hospital, including lobbies, waiting rooms, hallways and the cafeteria. Please refrain from using cell phones in patient care units including Intensive Care Unit (ICU), surgical suites, and the post-op/ambulatory department, as they may disrupt the use of patient monitors or interfere with other sensitive medical equipment. Please look for any signs restricting use. Patients and visitors may not use any device that photographs other patients, staff or visitors, without the prior authorization from the patient, staff or visitor.

Free WiFi Internet Access

When visiting Barton Memorial Hospital, you can connect to the Internet using your laptop or smartphone from most areas on campus using our free public WiFi. Simply connect to the “guest” network without needing a password and you will have access to the Internet.

Food and Nutrition

Wholesome, nourishing and well-balanced meals are an important part of your treatment and recovery. At Barton Memorial Hospital, we prepare and deliver healthy, nutritionally-balanced foods that align with your physician’s recommendations. You will be served breakfast at 8:00 a.m.; lunch at 12:00 p.m.; and dinner at 6:00 p.m. Occasionally your meal may be delayed if you are scheduled for a special test or treatment. Whenever possible, you will be served after your examination or test.

Cafeteria Hours for Visitors

The Barton Café is located on the first floor and offers both indoor seating and outside dining patio options. Breakfast is served from 7:00 - 10:30 a.m. Lunch is served from 11:30 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. and dinner is from 6:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. If a family member or friend would like to eat in your room with you, the person may go to the café, buy their meal and eat in your room.

Nutritional Services

Patients’ meals are planned specifically for their nutritional needs. If you have food restrictions due to allergies or religious/cultural customs, please inform your doctor or nurse as soon as possible. Our dietary aides will help you with your menu choices. You may ask for a dietitian to visit if you have additional questions.

Pain Management

Many people experience pain while they are in the hospital. Pain can be both frightening and disabling. Most of your pain can be controlled by the use of medications and other non-drug treatments, but sometimes it is not possible to completely eliminate pain. At Barton Memorial Hospital, we’re committed to helping you feel better as quickly as possible and dedicated to finding ways to help you be comfortable. Complimentary Comfort Cart items such as ear plugs, eye masks, lip balm, magazines, books, games and other items are always available to help make you as comfortable as possible.

Patient Responsibilities

As a patient, we encourage you to:

  • Ask your care team what to expect regarding your pain and pain management
  • Discuss pain relief options with your doctors and nurses
  • Work with your care team to develop a pain management plan
  • Ask for pain relief when pain first begins or increases
  • Help your care team assess your pain
  • Tell your care team if your pain is not relieved
  • Tell your care team about any concerns you have about taking pain medicine

Tell Someone About Your Pain

Please help your doctors and nurses measure your pain. You will be asked to rate your pain on a scale 0 – 10, where 0 is no pain and 10 is the worst pain imaginable. You may also choose a face on the scale to describe your pain. We will also ask you to set your own comfort goal.

Pain Rating Scale

Your Hospital Team

With a patient-family approach to care, we value the active role that you and your family play in determining your plan of care. When your doctor, nurse and other care team members see you, we encourage you to ask questions and make your wishes known.


Physicians who specialize in all aspects of your care from admission to discharge. They manage and coordinate all of your inpatient care while at the hospital, working closely with your primary care physician and other hospital staff to make the most effective treatment decisions.


Nursing care is provided by licensed professional Registered Nursing staff and Nursing Assistants who ensure that your plan of care is implemented in a safe, appropriate and timely manner.
The Registered Nurse coordinates your care to make sure that all care team members focus on your needs and provide you with a positive patient experience.

Case Management / Social Services:

During your stay, a Case Manager or Social Worker may visit you to assist with plans for discharge, equipment or services needed after discharge, use of healthcare services and needed resources while you are a patient.

Pastoral Services:

We believe that total patient care demands attention to the spiritual, as well as the physical and emotional needs of the patient. Your priest, minister or rabbi is always welcome to visit while you are here. Additionally, a clergy list is available at the front desk for your reference.

Other Personnel:

During your stay, other health care professionals may visit you. Depending on your care needs, this may include personnel from the Laboratory and Radiology departments and physical, speech or occupational therapists. In addition, the Barton Memorial Hospital family includes many behind-the-scenes staff members, such as accountants, engineers, food service workers, housekeeping and Auxiliary volunteers who contribute to your well-being during your stay.

Special Services

Language Interpreters

If you or a decision-maker needs an interpreter, please request our Language Access Services from any staff member. The purpose of Language Access Services is to ensure that all Limited English Proficient (LEP), speech disabled, deaf and hard of hearing patients and surrogate decision-makers are able to understand their medical conditions, treatment options and receive quality patient care.
When care providers do not have access to an in-person interpreter, Barton Health goes to My Accessible Real-Time Trusted Interpreter (MARTTI) which allows patients to securely access an American Sign Language Interpreter or Spoken Language Interpreter at the push of a button.

Advance Directives

By law, all patients admitted to the hospital must be asked about the presence of an Advance Directive (Living Will; Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care Decisions). If you do not have an Advance Directive, information will be provided to you. Hospital staff and practitioners will comply with the directive which will be placed on your medical record. Downloadable Advance Directive forms are available at www.iha4health.org.


Barton Health’s MyChart® is a free, easy and secure online tool that connects you to your health information from the privacy of your home making it very easy for you to manage your healthcare. Upon discharge, your nurse will provide you with an activation code and enrollment letter so you can create an account to access your health information. To learn more about MyChart®, ask your nurse or visit www.bartonhealth.org/MyChart.

Family & Friends

Visiting Hours

General visiting hours are from 8:00 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. and family members, significant others and friends are encouraged to visit patients. If you are visiting after 8:30 p.m., please enter through the Emergency Department entrance located in the rear of the hospital. Certain departments including the Family Birthing Center, ICU, Skilled Nursing and Emergency have variations to these hours. If you or your family member is an ICU patient, please plan on joining us for Multidisciplinary Rounding at 10:00 a.m. each day in the patient room to discuss the plan of care. Please ask the nursing staff in each department for the current guidelines relevant to your stay.

Spiritual Care

Our spiritual room is located on the first floor of the hospital, across from the elevators. Pastoral visits are available and can be arranged. A clergy list is available at the front desk for your reference.


Waiting Room

Our comfortable waiting lounge features a television, telephone and a computer with complimentary Internet access. You may also connect to the Internet from your personal laptop or smartphone with our free public WiFi using our “guest” network. The waiting room is located on the second floor, to the right as you exit the elevators.

Hospital Bills & Insurance

Healthcare billing can be complicated. To ensure the process is smooth, be sure to familiarize yourself with the terms of your insurance coverage. If there is a question about your insurance coverage, a member of the Patient Accounting Department will be happy to help you while you are here. We have included a few tips below to help the process.

Financial Responsibilities

Please provide Barton with timely and accurate personal information, insurance information and proper identification at each visit. If this is a workers’ compensation or occupational health occurrence, the patient must share that at each visit to assure appropriate billing submission.

  • Insurance co-pays are due at the time of service.
  • If you do not have insurance and do not qualify for financial assistance, payment arrangements may be made at the time of service.
  • Insurance contracts and coverages vary, and patients are ultimately responsible for the balance not paid by insurance companies. It is your responsibility to understand your insurance coverage.
  • Barton uses all reasonable and good faith efforts to bill your primary and/or secondary insurance, follow-up, and at times, file appeals of denials or rejections on your behalf.

Financial Assistance

We understand that healthcare can be expensive, and Barton is proud to provide financial assistance based on your income. We may be able to help you with all or part of your responsibility for hospital services. Help is offered to people with or without insurance through our Financial Assistance program. If you would like to pay your bill over time in smaller payments, we can help you set up a payment plan. Please contact a Barton Customer Service Representative at (530) 543-5930 to learn more.

Additional Questions

If you have questions regarding an insurance claim filed on your behalf, about an account statement you received, or need to make updates to your account information, please call the number listed on your bill.

Safety & Security

Our first priority is your health and safety. The single most important way you can help prevent injuries is to be an active member in your healthcare team.

Fall Prevention

Certain conditions make us more prone to falls and other accidental injuries. Medications, walking difficulties, chronic conditions, impaired vision or hearing and a fear of falling can all cause patient falls. To prevent falls at the hospital:

  • Always follow your physician’s orders and the nurses’ instructions regarding whether you must stay in bed or if you require assistance to go to the bathroom.
  • When you need assistance, use your call button by your bed or in the bathroom and wait for the nurse/assistant to arrive to help you. Someone will answer your call as promptly as possible.
  • Ask the nurse for help if you feel dizzy or weak getting out of bed. Remember you are more likely to faint or feel dizzy after sitting or lying for a longtime. If you must get up without waiting for help, sit in bed awhile before standing. Then rise carefully and slowly begin to walk.
  • Wear non-skid slipper socks whenever you walk in the hospital. If you don’t have any, ask your nurse for some.
  • Do not tamper with side rails that may be in use. Side rails are reminders to stay in bed and are designed to ensure your safety.
  • Walk slowly and carefully when out of bed. Do not lean or support yourself on rolling objects such as IV poles or your bedside table.

Speak Up

We encourage our patients to be active participants in their health care through the use of the “Speak Up” program.

Speak up if you have any questions or concerns and if you don’t understand, ask again.
Pay attention to the care you are receiving. Ask questions when you don’t understand.
Educate yourself about your diagnosis, medical tests and your plan of care.
Ask a trusted family member or friend to be with you if you are unable to ask questions for yourself.
Know what medications you take.
Use a health care organization that has undergone rigorous on-site evaluations.
Participate in decisions about your treatment. You are the center of your health care team.

Condition H(elp)

Barton Memorial Hospital is committed to providing the highest level of safe, quality care. Our Condition H program provides a hotline for patients and their visitors to call if they become concerned with a patient’s care and there is one of the following: deterioration in a patient’s condition that is concerning and not being addressed; an urgent (non-emergency) need to get the attention of the hospital staff; a communication breakdown of how care is being provided; uncertainty about what needs to be done next in a patient’s care plan.
To make a Condition H call, dial the ext. 5860 from any hospital phone. Provide your name, the patient’s room number, the patient’s name and the patient concern. Within 10 minutes of calling, a team of critical care clinicians will arrive at the patient’s bedside to reassess the patient’s condition. Our goal is to address the immediate needs of the patient.

Preventing Infection

Our priority is to maintain a clean and safe patient environment.

  • Germicidal wipes are available to clean surfaces and personal items such as TV remote, telephone, call button, door knobs, bedside table.
  • Clean hands before meals and after using the restroom.
  • Visitors and staff should wash their hands before and after entering the patient room, and after touching the patient.

Preventing hospital acquired pneumonia begins with good oral care:

  • Patients should brush teeth after each meal.
  • Use antiseptic oral rinse to kill germs.
  • Apply the complimentary lip balm to keep lips moist.


Barton Health is a smoke-free healthcare system. For your health, all patients, visitors, employees and physicians are prohibited from using tobacco products anywhere inside, outside or on the grounds of Barton Memorial Hospital and all Barton Health facilities. This includes the parking areas and the vehicles parked there. The smoke-free campus initiative covers all tobacco products including chewing tobacco, as well as marijuana and e-cigarettes. If you use tobacco, please notify your nurse or physician immediately so they can help you if you are in need of nicotine replacement options.

Reporting Quality of Care/Safety Issues

Our goal is to provide the highest quality care to all patients and their families. Occasionally concerns are raised that require review and monitoring. If you wish to report a quality of care/safety issue, please contact the Director of Patient Safety at (530) 543-5555 or the Director of Quality Management at (530) 543-5899.

Ethics-Based Approach to Patient Care

We believe and actively encourage patients and their families/ caregivers to participate in patient care and decision making. We recognize that dealing with serious and vitally important health care decisions can be both stressful and difficult for patients and families. This may sometimes cause conflict between family members or between family and members of the health care team. Barton’s Ethics Committee is structured to handle any ethics issue that may arise during your hospital stay. This Ethics Committee is comprised of the hospital’s medical staff (including your physician), nursing, social service, and clergy and can be convened at your request to address your issue with the utmost professionalism, dignity, compassion and confidence. To obtain further information about this program, please contact your physician, nurse or other hospital employee who will make the appropriate referral to an individual who will contact you or your family.
