Is it okay to post the patient’s complete name on the outside of the patient’s hospital room?Generally no. The patient’s entire name should not be posted. Rather, the patient’s first initial and complete last name or just the patient’s last name may be posted. No other information should be displayed – such as the attending physician’s name or service. Information about precautions and/or isolation can be posted.
