Lost items
These can be recovered from Reception at each hospital site.

Pot plants and flowers
For hygiene reasons, pot plants are not allowed in the hospital rooms. This rule does not apply to cut flowers.

Spiritual welfare
Upon admission, you are asked about religious affiliation: you are not obliged to answer.
The representative of your religion or denomination may visit you and remain at your disposal. You can also ask your care staff at any time to arrange for you to see them. The chaplains serve other religious communities in the Canton and, if requested, can put you in touch with adherents of your faith. There is a room for worship or a chapel at each hospital site.

To use the telephone in your room, please contact Reception, the Admissions Office or a nurse to have the procedure printed out for you. A telephone bill will be sent to you on a monthly basis. When you leave, you have the possibility of immediately paying the sum for the current month. If you wish, you can also make an advance payment before activating your line. In this case, if the credit balance used is less than the advance payment, the difference will not be refunded to you. If you overrun your prepayment, you will be invoiced at your home address.

What would you like to eat? You can choose your meals on a daily basis, according to your state of health and your tastes.

Brochures and videos inform you and help you to manage your illness better. Discover the complete collection and on HUG web TV
