If possible, please select one family member or friend to be the primary contact as this helps avoid confusion and ensures all questions and concerns get answered. Having questions written is also helpful. The primary contact can also be the designated keeper of the code that will be required in order for the patient's medical information to be released over the phone. At Littleton Adventist Hospital, we are committed to protecting personal medical information from any use for which it was not intended. This code identifies the caller as someone we can provide inormation to and helps protect the patient's privacy, in compliance with federal regulations (HIPAA).
For general questions or concerns about the ICU at Littleton Adventist Hospital, please contact the nurses' station at 303-730-5823.
