Responsibilities as a Parent and as a Patient

Please review the following items that may apply to both parents/caregivers and to patients.

  • Please do not wear perfumes, colognes, aftershave, scented lotions or scented hair products, as these can cause an allergic reaction in some of our patients.

  • National Jewish Health is a non-smoking facility

  • Please be aware of your schedule at all times and arrive on time to each appointment/test. Certain tests may not be able to be rescheduled if missed. Please notify your Patient Administrative Coordinator at 303.398.1629 in advance if you cannot keep an appointment.

  • Please make sure all medical records are sent to National Jewish Health in advance of your visit. Please see the Medical Records section for further direction.

  • Please complete the attached patient questionnaire and return it to your Patient Administrative Coordinator.

  • Please ensure you follow the guidelines found within the Preparing for Your Tests section.

  • Be honest and direct about aspects of your life that relate to your child’s illness and experience here. This will help your medical team complete a relevant and useful treatment plan for your child.

  • Know the names and dosages of the medications your child is taking. Please bring all the medications and medical devices your child is currently using.

  • Report any changes in your child’s health to your doctor or nurse as soon as possible.

  • Please understand that as a courtesy to our patients, National Jewish Health verifies your insurance coverage. This does not guarantee your insurance will cover your child’s appointments and testing. If you have questions about your coverage, please contact your insurance carrier.

  • Your child may require testing at another health care facility. The staff will assist you in making these arrangements. However, please note that National Jewish Health is not responsible for verifying your insurance benefits at other facilities.

  • Please be considerate of other patients’ privacy at all times.

  • Please keep track of your personal belongings and valuables. National Jewish Health is not responsible for any lost, stolen or damaged items.
