Check Patient Status

Patient Information

Patients at McDowell Hospital choose whether they want to be listed in our directory and whether they want to receive calls while in the hospital. If a patient decides to be in the directory, then we can tell callers their room number, otherwise we do not provide any information about their condition.

If a patient does not choose to be listed in the directory, then we must tell anyone who calls for information that we have no listing for a patient of that name. This is determined by federal law designed to protect patient privacy.
