Most patient rooms have telephones. On each telephone is a four-digit extension number, different from the room number. People outside Washington Regional Medical Center may contact patients directly by dialing the patient information number at 252-793-4135.
If patients would like to have their room telephone turned off or routed to the nurses’ station, please speak with the nurse. The telephone should not be unplugged.
To place an outside local call, dial 9, the area code, and the seven-digit telephone number. For patients with hearing difficulties, phone amplifiers are available by contacting your nursing staff. Telephone Device for the Deaf (TDD) service is available.
