Patient Trust Fund
The MSA takes great care when dealing with the valuables of patients who are admitted to our facility. Items are inventoried, documented, and secured in a vault. Withdrawals are only allowed with proper identification. Proper identification may be a photo ID of the patient, or a copy of the deposit record accompanied by their medical center armband. If the patient is physically unable to sign for their belongings, the next of kin will need to provided the above mentioned forms of identification and a witness’ signature will take the place of the patients. If the patient is being discharged after duty hours, the Admin Officer of the Day (AOD) will be notified. The AOD will determine if the patient has an emergency need for his/her belongings and will notify the appropriate personnel to retrieve the items.
Many times valuables are left unclaimed. You can call our office for information if you may have valuables in our custody. We will gladly assist you in the process of reclaiming your valuables.
