The military chain of command should initially contact the unit's Medical Officer (MEDO) first as they will typically work directly with the Patient Liaison Noncommissioned Officer (LNO) at LRMC. If additional assistance is needed, please contact the Deployed Warrior Medical Management Center (DWMMC).

Patient Status Updates

Patient safety and privacy are top priorities so we strictly follow HIPAA and Privacy Act laws regarding the release of patient information. Following a request for patient status that includes the patient's full name, we can confirm if the patient is here, provide a one-word patient status and their location within the hospital. Patients also have the right to ask that their information not be shared. We use the following standard language acceptable under HIPAA laws and American Hospital Association guidelines to describe patient conditions:
  • Undetermined - Patient is awaiting physician and/or assessment.
  • Good - Vital signs are stable and within normal limits. Patient is conscious and comfortable. Indicators are excellent.
  • Fair - Vital signs are stable and within normal limits. Patient is conscious, but may be uncomfortable. Indicators are favorable.
  • Serious - Vital signs may be unstable and not within normal limits. Patient is acutely ill. Indicators are questionable.
  • Critical - Vital signs are unstable and not within normal limits. Patient may be unconscious. Indicators are unfavorable.
  • Treated and Released – This could mean the patient was sent home or to another facility.
  • Confirming patient deaths – We will report or confirm a patient's death only after signed consent from next of kin.

 

Don't forget to keep your family's information up-to-date in DEERS.
