A Guide to Ensure Your Safety
Thank you for selecting High Point Regional Health System. As a health care organization, we take your safety seriously. While you’re a patient with us, we want you to be comfortable so please let us know if you have specific needs.
Know your medications, the dose you take and why you take them. This includes any herbal medications, vitamins or diet supplements. Keep an up-to-date list of your medications and always have it with you.
If you are given a medication you do not recognize, ask questions. Have the nurse double check this for you. Make sure we check your identification before we give you any medication.
If you do not understand how to take your medicines or what they are for, tell your caregivers. You will receive written instructions to help you.
If you receive prescriptions and can’t read the handwriting, ask someone to print the information for you.
