Your Hospital Team 

The Medical Staff
The physician who admits you is responsible for directing your care while you are in the hospital.  Your physician, as the coordinator for your treatment program, should be consulted if you have questions about your illness.


The Nursing Staff
A team of professional registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, and nurse assistants provides around the clock nursing care. A nurse manager is responsible for directing and coordinating nursing care on each unit. Please feel free to contact your nurse or the nurse manager if you have questions or concerns.

Pastoral Services
We believe that total patient care demands attention to the spiritual, as well as the physical and emotional, needs of each patient. Community ministers are available to assist with your spiritual needs.  Please call “0” to have an operator arrange a visit from a minister. Your priest, minister or rabbi is always welcome to visit you while you are here.

The hospital maintains a staff of full-time registered dietitians to meet your dietary needs during your stay. If you have questions about your meals or diet, call extension 7014.

Social Workers
Social workers are assigned to each patient care area and are trained to help patients and family members deal with financial, social, and emotional problems that relate to illness or hospitalization. Members of the department work with patients and families to help deal with long-term illnesses and rehabilitation and are involved in discharge planning.

A member of the housekeeping staff cleans your room daily. If there is a housekeeping problem in your room, contact your nurse and the problem will be taken care of as soon as possible.

Volunteers contribute many hours of service and financial assistance to the hospital. They supplement the services of the hospital staff in many ways and can be identified by their name tags.

Other Personnel
During your stay many other health care professionals, including personnel from the Laboratory and Radiology Departments and physical or occupational therapists, may visit you. In addition, the Saint Francis Hospital-Bartlett family includes many behind-the-scenes workers, such as accountants, pharmacists, engineers, secretaries, food service workers, and others who contribute greatly toward your well-being while you are here.
