Patients and Visitors

UnityPoint Health - Trinity Bettendorf Hospital

Patients

Beginning May 6, 2020, UnityPoint Health will test all patients admitted to our hospitals for COVID-19. This includes planned admissions and transfers of all ages who have not been tested for COVID-19 in the prior 72 hours.

At Trinity, we look forward to providing you with care, convenience, confidentiality and courtesy. Whether you are coming to see us for a routine procedure, expect an extended stay or are preparing to celebrate a new arrival to your family, we are prepared to meet your needs.

Our patients are critical to the work that we do, and having the opportunity to work with people on a daily basis is the reason many of us chose to enter the health care field. Helping you feel better makes us feel better too.

Conditions of Admission

Thank you for choosing UnityPoint Health for your care. At the time of admission to one of our affiliated hospitals (other than for emergency care) or when you seek care from some of our outpatient departments, you will be asked to agree to our "Conditions of Admission." By signing this document, you allow UnityPoint Health and its affiliates to provide you with medical care, share your health information and receive payment for the services provided.

The complete text of the UnityPoint Health Conditions of Admission is available below:

Except for emergency services, you are required to sign the Conditions of Admission prior to our providing health care services, so that we are able to conduct our necessary business processes.

If you have questions about making payments or financial assistance, please contact the UnityPoint Health Central Billing Office at (844) 849-1260.

Advanced Directives

All legal adults have the right to make decisions and choices regarding their medical care and health care. Unfortunately, circumstances sometimes arrive in which we are no longer able to make those decisions for ourselves, and wish to defer those choices to those around us that we trust.

These decisions should never be taken lightly, and require a lot of input and reflection from those people that are important in your life. To assist you in that process, Trinity has provided several advanced directive documents online to help with those conversations and decisions about your future.

An advance directive is a document in which a person either states choices for medical treatment (living will) or designates someone who should make health care decisions in the event the individual becomes unable to make them (power of attorney for health care).

Please feel free to download any of our forms or brochures to learn more.

For questions, call (309) 779-2687.

Your care is important to us! At UnityPoint Health - Trinity, your doctor will order the medicines he/she feels it is necessary for you to take during your hospital stay. You will only be taking medicine or pills that the hospital gives you. To provide the best care, we need to know what you are taking and when. Trinity has chosen the most appropriate medications for the most reasonable price.

Many insurances pay for your procedure or observation stay. However, your insurance may not pay for all of the medications you receive. Those medicines that you normally take at home may not be paid for by Medicare or insurance while in an outpatient or observation level of care.

I you are currently enrolled in a Part D Prescription Drug Plan, Trinity can provide you with an itemized statement that includes the drug information your plan may require in order to process a claim for possible reimbursement.

Trinity's Financial Assistant (309-779-2440) is available to answer any of your questions regarding your hospital bill. For a copy of your itemized statement, please call our Central Billing Office at (888)-343-4165 or (888)-343-4168.

Visitors

At UnityPoint Health we strive to treat everyone with dignity, respect and full attention to personal needs. Help us keep our patients - and you - safe by following our visitor guideline and refraining from disruptive behavior. Thank you for being kind!

Trinity recognizes that the support of family and friends can play a vital role in the recovery of each patient. The hospital has established visiting hours so the scheduling needs of both patients and visitors may be met. Visitors should be free of infectious disease, such as a cold or flu.

Visitors, support persons and caregivers will be asked to leave if they will not follow these Visitor Guidelines and UnityPoint Health – Trinity policies, or if they are disrupting the care of patients.

Current Visitor Guidelines

UnityPoint Health – Trinity provides the following visitor guidelines for patients. These guidelines adjust visitor access according to the needs of the care setting and the level of COVID-19 community spread.

As COVID-19 infection rates decrease, we look forward to reinstating visitor accessibility as it is safe. The community is encouraged to get vaccinated, continue practicing social distancing, masking, and performing frequent hand hygiene to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

All Visitors Must:

  • Be symptom-free (no symptoms of respiratory infection including fever, runny nose, cough, shortness of breath), and
  • have not tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 10 days, and
  • have not been in close contact with anyone who has COVID-19 in the past 10 days, and
  • be 12 years of age or older to visit patients in the hospital.

Masks Optional in all UnityPoint Health - Trinity Facilities

UnityPoint Health has updated its masking guidelines. At this time, masking is now based on personal preference. Patients and visitors should mask in our facilities if they are currently ill with respiratory symptoms, have a COVID-19 diagnosis, or have been exposed to COVID-19 in the past 10 days. Masking is strongly recommended when community transmission levels are high. We encourage anyone who prefers to continue masking to do so.

A few tips to keep in mind when visiting Trinity:

  • Call patients before visiting to ensure they are feeling up to having guests.
  • Be aware of the number of people in a room and the length of your visit so patients are able to have plenty of time to rest.
  • Should you be exhibiting any signs of illness, please refrain from visiting until your symptoms are gone.
  • Help prevent infection by routinely washing your hands, particularly after using the restroom and before touching the patient.
  • Accompany and supervise all children under the age of 14.
  • If you are unable to visit, offer to help the family with tasks around the house such as grocery shopping, collecting mail and newspapers or preparing and freezing meals.

Additional Visitor Information

Cell Phones
Patients and visitors may use cell phones within the hospital except around certain types of equipment. Please ask your nurse if you have specific questions regarding usage. When using your cell phone, we ask that you take calls or make calls in a private area. This is to respect private patient information and to maintain a low level of noise in patient care areas.
