Observation Stays

Relevant Information

For some conditions, your physician may admit you to RCH for observation.

Observation stays are considered an outpatient service and allows your physician to monitor your condition. RCH advises that you or your family bring your medication from home. Any medication must be in its originally labeled bottle from the pharmacy.

We cannot dispense medicine from a pillbox. (If you have Medicare and are an outpatient, oral medications are not covered and it becomes your responsibility to pay for them.)
