Patient Condition Report

To inquire about a patient’s condition, immediate family members may call the Marcus Stroke and Neuroscience Center anytime using the patient information card provided by the admitting nurse, and speak to the nurse caring for the patient.

Family members should identify themselves and give the patient’s name and ID card number. Condition reports are given only to immediate family members who have the patient’s ID number.

We ask that one or two family members be designated to inquire about a patient’s condition. These family members can then relay the information to others. Friends should contact the family for information about a patient’s condition.
