Being a Patient at Danbury Hospital
Doctors and nurses are your care team members you will see most often. Your doctor will direct your care. However, residents, interns, nurse practitioners and doctor assistants may assist. Since Danbury Hospital is a teaching hospital, students from our School of Allied Health may also participate in your care under the direct supervision of our qualified medical professionals instructing them.
Who’s on Your Care Team?
Danbury Hospital staff members wear identification badges so that you know their names and their role in your care. We want your hospital stay to be a positive experience. If you are unable to read a badge, please feel free to ask staff members their names and how their activities relate to your care.
Volunteers contribute many hours of service to the hospital. They supplement the services of our staff in many ways and can be identified by their name badges.
You may not meet everyone on your care team when you stay at the hospital. Some members of your care team work in other parts of the hospital and support your care indirectly. Other members of your care team include people in the nuclear medicine section of the Department of Medicine and the members in the laboratory Pathology department.
You‘re Part of the Care Team Too!
Danbury Hospital encourages you to share any concerns you may have about your care. During your stay in the hospital, if you have any concerns, we suggest that you speak with your doctor, nurse or the unit manager. Our leadership team is committed to your satisfaction and may be contacted at any time through the department manager.
At any time during your hospital visit and after you’ve gone home you can contact our Patient Relations
