We have designed a valuables policy which is intended to insure safe keeping of patient valuables. The policy will be explained to you upon admission by the nursing staff caring for you. Please follow the procedure for jewelry, credit cards and/or money (except for a small sum for incidentals) which should be sent home or secured in the Health Center Safe upon arrival. It is important to follow the policy as Ottumwa Regional Health Center assumes no responsibility if personal items are lost or misplaced. If you do leave personal belongings behind, they will be taken to the Information Desk and you will be notified.
