While You Are an Inpatient
Information Regarding Your Stay at Oroville Hospital
Your Medical Care
While you are hospitalized, your doctor is responsible for your medical treatment. Your doctor is a member of Oroville Hospital’s medical staff, a highly qualified group of physicians who have been carefully screened and selected to care for you. Whenever possible, you will be placed in a private room.
We know it is difficult to be in isolation and we appreciate your cooperation with our isolation policies.

You doctor will prescribe any medications you may need during your hospital stay. Your nurse will administer these medications as prescribed by your doctor. Please do not bring medicines from home including over-the-counter items such as herbs or pain relievers. This is necessary so that your doctor can control your medication while you are hospitalized.
While you are hospitalized, our team of Registered Dietitians will arrange your meal plan under the direction of your physician. If you would like to speak with a Dietitian about your meals or have special dietary requirements based on cultural or religious practices, please ask your nurse to arrange a visit from your Dietitian. Because your physician may have ordered a special diet as part of your hospital care, we request that you talk to your nurse before eating food brought by family or friends.
*For the safety of everyone, patients will not be permitted in the cafeteria. If you have a particular request, please speak with your nurse.
