IVCH has established stringent infection-control procedures to protect
our patients and staff. As part of this effort, you may notice the hospital
staff wearing gloves, gowns, masks and/or goggles when caring for you.
Your doctor and nurses will explain all of our infection-control procedures to you.
Interpreters and Communication Assistance
IVCH has access to interpreters for patients who require it. Arrangements
also can be made for other communication assistance, as needed.
A complete medical record is kept for each admission to the hospital. This
information is available for reference by your doctor. The record, including
x-ray film and laboratory slides, is the property of the hospital.

He or she will arrange for one to visit your room to assist you. There
