Sending Flowers To A Hospital? Things Your Florist Should Know
There are many occasions where hospital flowers are the gift of choice. The birth of a baby, a friend's surgery, or perhaps a loved one's near passing create the desire to send flowers to a local hospital. With many rules and regulations to protect patient safety, there are several things that your florist must know before your flowers can be delivered.
When a baby has been delivered, many list the name of the family member that they know the best. In the event that this person is the father, remember that the mother is the one listed on the room rather than the baby or the father. If you do not know the mother's name, ask someone if possible as this will make delivery go much smoother.
Another very helpful piece of information is the room number. If you received a text or call from the doting father or mother with "come visit us in room X", use this to your advantage. Florists delivering new baby flowers to a hospital will need this information in the event that the occupant's last name is not known. It also makes it easier on hospital staff who are juggling patients in many rooms. Once you have these helpful tidbits lined out, your flower delivery will be as smooth as the new baby's bottom.
The room number is helpful when delivering flowers to a hospital for any occasion, not just the birth of a child. The room number is not generally given out by the hospital nor is any other patient information. They can give the delivering florist a hard time if they do not have this information which leaves your gift without a recipient. If you are sending flowers to someone in a hospital across the country, it is helpful to have as much information about the patient as possible. Room number and patient's name will help your florist deliver your gift with efficiency and a smile.
