Wireless @ Hackettstown Medical Center
Hackettstown Medical Center offers free wireless Internet access to patients and visitors using their personal laptop computers and other devices. This means that in patient rooms, and on personal devices, patients and visitors will be able to check e-mail and surf the Web while in the hospital. Upon admission, patients will be given information on tips and guidelines for usage of the provided wireless Internet.
Keeping in mind that the Medical Center is a place for healing, patients will be able to use the Internet at the discretion of the nurse supervisor. Should the nurse supervisor find that Internet access and/or laptop use is disruptive to the patient's medical care, the patient will be asked to discontinue use. Visitors may use their laptops or other Internet accessible device while in the common areas of the Medical Center or in a patient room, again, if the usage does not disrupt the patient's care in any way.
