The hospital has access to interpreters for several languages as well as those with hearing and sight impairments, should a patient require it. Please call 260-724-2145, ext. 12907, for assistance.

General Guidelines for Patients

Please ask your nurse or any Adams team member if you have any questions about your health care, your room, the hospital or our services.

We know it can be hard to be away from home – and in a hospital – for any reason. We make sure to listen to every request or question and then find the answers. The goal of every Adams employee is to make your experience as a patient or visitor as pleasant as possible.

Registration/Main Entrance Hours:

  • Monday – Thursday: 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.
  • Friday: 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
  • Saturday: 7 a.m. to 11 a.m.
  • Sunday: Closed (registration is available in the Emergency Department)

Please proceed to the Emergency Department entrance if the main entrance is closed.

Pastoral Services

We believe comprehensive patient care demands attention to the spiritual needs as well as the physical and emotional requirements of each patient. Representatives of your religious affiliation are always welcome.

Your Safety

Smoking Policy

Adams Memorial Hospital is a tobacco-free facility. In certain cases, your physician may opt to prescribe a nicotine patch while you are a patient.

Oxygen

Special regulations are in effect in areas where patients are receiving oxygen. Electrically operated equipment and aerosol products are not permitted in these areas. Absolutely no smoking is permitted in any room.

Lost Items

Patients are encouraged not to keep items of value with them while in the hospital. Valuable items should be sent home with family if possible. This hospital does not accept responsibility for items kept in your room or at the bedside.

Medications

While you are in the hospital, a physician will prescribe all your medications. The hospital pharmacy will dispense the medications, and a caregiver will administer them to you. Patients are not permitted to administer their own drugs or keep personal medications at their bedsides.
