Each patient room, other than those in the PICU, has its own telephone. Incoming calls can be received at no charge, however there is a $3 daily fee for unlimited local service for outgoing calls. If you do not rent the telephone service for outgoing calls, you may still use the phone to call any hospital department or other patients' rooms at no charge.
Long distance calls must be charged to your home phone or calling card or be placed as collect calls. For more information about phone services call 401-444-7000.
Color televisions with cable service and DVDs are provided in each room free of charge. Channel 3 is our Patient Information Network (PIN), which offers general information and programs on health and medical topics. The channel numbers on the television sets do not always match locally listed channels. A television channel guide is available in each patient's room.
The GetWellNetwork is available on all inpatient units at Hasbro Children's Hospital. GetWellNetwork provides patient education and entertainment through in-room television monitors. The program is easy to use and accessible on a 22-inch touch-screen television in each patient room. The content includes television programming, expert patient education, movies, internet use, patient surveys and interactive games.
