Notice of Privacy Policies
We are sensitive to your need for privacy and confidentiality. For information on how medical information about you may be used and disclosed—and how you can get access to this information—please click here.
We will provide admitted patients with information about their illness. Sometimes, patients with an acute health problem may have other chronic health problems. If that is the case, we will provide appropriate instructions to the patient and/or family member(s) responsible. The patient’s education may include videos, written materials, or counseling sessions. We have a team of educators comprised of Nursing, Nutrition Services, Respiratory Care Services, Rehabilitation Services, Pharmacy, Pastoral Services, and the Patient Educators…all ready to help you. Other Baptist Easley personnel may become involved based on the patient’s needs. We also provide patient education as an important part of discharge planning.
We deliver mail to our patients each day. Special delivery mail is delivered upon receipt. We will also forward any mail received after discharge.

Visiting hours are 8:30am to 9pm. For Critical Care patients, we will make special arrangements for visits after 9pm. Please make all nighttime visits after 9pm by coming through the Emergency Room entrance.
We offer free parking in areas adjacent to the hospital marked for “Patients and Visitors,” respectively. The hospital is not responsible for damages to vehicles in its parking lots, unless caused by a staff member in the performance of assigned duties, or for thefts of-or from-vehicles.
Our security staff provides 24-hour coverage and patrols the medical center facilities, grounds, and parking areas.
Valuables and Cash
Baptist Easley Hospital does not accept responsibility for misplaced/stolen cash or personal items such as dentures, glasses, hearing aids, jewelry, or cameras. We encourage patients to leave valuables at home for safekeeping. Patients must advise nursing/staff if they have cash and or valuables that require safekeeping. We keep records and receipts for patients who ask the hospital to provide safekeeping of their valuables or cash.
We offer free wireless Internet access for our visitors. Patients and visitors can use a Wi-Fi connection to work from their own wireless devices while at Baptist Easley Hospital.
If a patient notifies a nurse of dentures, we will mark it on his chart and give him a denture cup. Please keep dentures in the cup to avoid loss.
Baptist Easley is a community leader in the anti-smoking campaign-actively discouraging smoking on the grounds and in the parking lots. Smoking is prohibited in all buildings and at all public entrances to buildings, as well as on the grounds and in parking lots.
We value your feedback and are constantly looking for new ways to improve. So we ask that each patient who visits our hospital complete a survey questionnaire, administered by Press-Ganey, Inc. We appreciate your comments and use them to help us improve our services. Every response is entered into a quarterly drawing for $200.00. If, while you are in the hospital, your experiences don’t meet your expectations—or you would like to make a suggestion—we would love for you to call our Service Excellence Line at extension 27843, or call 442.7843.
Food and Nutrition Services
We are known for our cooking and take pride in providing nutritional meals and excellent service. A member of the food service staff visits patients within the first day or two of their stay to determine food preferences. Although the menu has been pre-selected, every attempt is made to honor special requests and substitutions—within the limits of the physician’s diet order. For family members who cannot leave a patient’s bedside, guest trays may be ordered through the business office.
Our dining room is open to the public. Our hours of operation are:
You can access our daily menu by dialing 442.7300 or extension 27300 from inside on your hospital phone. We value your comments regarding our services. If you have a comment or suggestion, please call our Service Excellence Line at 442.7883 or extension 27843.
Vending Machines are located at the entrance to the cafeteria and in waiting rooms near the Emergency Room, CCU, Inpatient and Outpatient Surgery, and Birthplace.
We will assign a nurse case manager to coordinate your care during and after your hospital stay. This nurse will work closely with all staff caring for you to ensure that the treatment plan is carried out effectively and efficiently. The discharge planning nurse will assist you and your case manager to make arrangements as needed for home care services or equipment.
If you need to stay in a skilled nursing facility, retirement home, or a rehabilitation facility after discharge, the discharge planning nurse will assist your family to make those arrangements. This nurse can explain the rules, regulations and requirements of Medicare, Medicaid, or private insurance with respect to extended hospital stays or long term care.
Injury, illness, or disability can be emotionally stressful for individuals and families. Your case manager will discuss your concerns with you or your family-offering support and assistance as needed. Referrals can be made to social workers or counselors, if appropriate.
To reach any of the staff from case management, ask your nurse to contact the staff for you, or dial “0” and ask the operator to assist you.
Notify your nurse if you require special assistance for needs such as hearing impairments, closed captioning, and sign language.
Flowers and gifts are delivered Monday through Friday. Flowers for patients in Intensive Care are returned to the florist for re-delivery when the patient is assigned a regular room. Flowers for discharged patients are returned to the florist. Please do not send or bring latex-containing products, such as rubber balloons, to the hospital, as they may cause serious medical problems for latex-allergic patients, visitors, and staff.
