Patient policies and procedures
HCA Florida Largo Hospital strives to give patients the best experience possible by creating and carrying out patient-focused policies and procedures.
We want your hospital experience to be as comfortable as possible. That's why we offer the following information to help prepare you for your admission and hospital experience.
Your doctor arranges for your admission, decides what tests and procedures you receive, prescribes your medications and diet while you're in the hospital and decides when you are ready to be discharged. It is important that you discuss your care with your physician while you are hospitalized at HCA Florida Largo Hospital.
Make sure your doctor has called the hospital to order the outpatient procedure needed. If your physician gives you the paperwork/order for your test, be sure to bring it with you when you report for the test.
Your privacy password
At admission, every patient is given a confidential password. Patients are told to share it with people they want to receive their confidential patient health information. Nurses and staff can provide information about the patient’s health ONLY to people who know the password. This password is only for verbal communication regarding treatment or payment during this hospital stay. It will not be honored once the patient is discharged. Remember our staff will not release health information without this password.
Leave unnecessary valuables at home. Be prepared to pay your co-payments and deductibles, but do not bring large amounts of cash with you. We cannot be responsible for loss or breakage of personal items brought into the hospital.
If you have a Living Will, bring a copy when you report to Admitting. If you want to have one in your medical file, the Admitting Office has forms available.
Your private room TV and telephone
There is no additional charge for your private patient room, TV and local phone calls. However, you must call collect or charge long-distance calls to your home number or credit card. Our hospital cannot add them to your hospital bill. Friends and relatives can call you directly by dialing (727) 588-5200, ext. 2 and your room number.
Bring your insurance card when you are admitted. We make a copy of it so we can bill your insurer directly for your covered benefits. Your co-payments are expected at this time. It is important that you understand what your insurance covers and where you can go for care. Many insurance plans require pre-certification before admission. To avoid reduced benefits, call your insurance company to verify your coverage and make sure your authorizations are in order. If you have any financial questions, please call our Financial Counselors at (727) 588-5246 or (727) 588-5815, weekdays from 8:30am to 5:30pm.
HCA Florida Largo Hospital wants to be your healthcare resource. If you have questions or concerns during your hospital stay, please call our V.I.P. Patient Services office at extension 2929 or ask to speak to the Nursing Supervisor.
