What to Expect

What to expect during your stay at PVH

At Poudre Valley Hospital, we follow patient- and family-centered care principles, including:

  • We treat patients with dignity and respect.
  • We share complete and useful information with patients about their conditions and treatments in a way that is affirming.
  • We help patients and families remain in control of their care as much as possible.
  • Doctors, nurses, techs, and other staff work collaboratively with patients.

Here are a few things to expect while staying with us:

  • Our staff members will wash their hands before examining you. Regular hand-washing is the best way to prevent infections.
  • We will routinely double-check your name and wristband before giving you medicine, tests and procedures.
  • More patients than you might think have a high risk of falling, which can cause injury. If you are at risk for falling, a staff member will help you in the bathroom. Many falls in hospitals take place in the bathroom, and we want to keep you safe and healthy.
  • We will check your vital signs regularly, even at night. We promote rest and sleep, but we also need to wake you for check-ups requested by your doctor. We want to make sure you are safe and doing well.
