Internet Access

Nebraska Medicine would like to assist you in keeping your lifestyle as normal as possible during your hospital stay. One of the ways we help achieve that is by providing patients with high-speed Internet access. Computers are available for public use in Storz Pavilion, as well as in the Internet cafe located on Level Two at Bellevue. Wireless Internet connection is available throughout the hospital, including patient areas.

Wireless Internet connection is available in several locations on campus, including patient areas. If you have technical questions, please contact the IT Help Desk at 402-559-7700.

Individuals using the wireless network are subject to having all of their activities monitored and recorded by systems personnel. The Nebraska Medicine reserves the right to revoke and deny access, without warning, in the event that abuse of policy is detected.

Internet users have several responsibilities during their time online at The Nebraska Medical Center, including:

  • Responsible use of resources
  • Refraining from illegal or unethical Internet use
  • Respect of copyright laws by making only authorized copies of copyrighted materials
  • Refraining from altering hospital-owned equipment and software
  • Accurately represent self by access code, password and/or signature as appropriate
  • Acknowledgement that email is not confidential and may be read by others
  • Acknowledgement that Internet use is a privilege
  • Refraining from use of Peer-to-Peer (P2P) software products, which are restricted by the hospital

In rare situations where problems occur, unlawful activities will be referred to the appropriate legal authorities. The hospital is not responsible for any damages - direct or indirect - or any liabilities that may arise from a customer’s Internet use.

The Internet is an unregulated medium of information and communication. Therefore, the hospital does not monitor nor have control over the information provided through this resource. Not all information on the Internet is current, accurate or complete. The hospital does not use filtering software, so we strongly suggest parents supervise their children’s Internet use.
