While all of our rooms at Nebraska Medical Center are designed to be private rooms, situations could arise where you may have a roommate. Personal requests for private rooms can be made and will be accommodated based on availability. As most insurance policies do not pay for patient requested private rooms, you are responsible for the difference in cost. Check with your insurance carrier if you are unsure.
To place a call from inside your room, follow these instructions:
HOSPITAL DEPARTMENT OR CAMPUS NUMBER
Dial the last five digits of the telephone number.
Dial *9. At the dial tone, dial the local number with the area code.
LONG DISTANCE CALLS
Dial *90 and the operator will help you.
Note: You are not charged for local phone calls. Collect calls cannot be accepted at the hospital. Calling cards and pay phones are located in various public areas throughout the hospital.
