ELIGIBILITY

We serve patients1 and their families while actively receiving medical care at BACH for serious injuries, wounds, and illnesses (other local hospitals at the manager's discretion). Eligible Fisher House guests are:

  • immediate family members of in-patients (spouse, children, parents - including step and “in loco-parentis”, siblings)

  • extended family members of in-patients (grandparents, in-laws, aunts, uncles, cousins) when immediate family is not already occupying a room

  • medically and mentally stable and able to care for themselves and/or their family members

  • out-patients - case by case at manager's discretion (patient and guest safety is top priority)

  • 1Patient must be entitled to receive treatment at a military or VA medical facility.

GETTING A ROOM

A Referral Form should be completed and submitted by the treating physician/surgeon or a member of the medical team, hospital social work, or case manager. Self referrals are only accepted from prior guests.

Check-ins are scheduled/arranged during regular business hours - Mon-Fri 9:00 - 4:00 (we are closed weekends and holidays).

A referral is not a reservation! We always recommend that families be prepared to make other arrangements as rooms are not guaranteed until the day prior to check in. When we have more referrals than rooms, we prioritize on many factors, including medical severity, projected length of stay, financial need, etc... When the Fisher House is full, we will maintain a waiting list. Our policy is one room per family. Room types available include: Queen room - 1 queen bed, sleeps 3 with extra person on recliner, twin airbed or portacrib; Double Room - 2 full beds, sleeps 4; Twin Room - 2 twin beds, sleeps 3 with extra person on recliner, twin airbed or portacrib. Additional rooms may be permitted for special circumstances.

COST

Currently, there is no cost to the family for a stay at the Fisher House, thanks to Fisher House Foundation. Everything provided to the families while staying at the Fort Campbell Fisher House is made possible by our generous supporters in the Fort Campbell community!

OUR LIMITATIONS

We provide the families of our patients with a comfortable stay in a home environment. Please understand that we are not a medical facility, nursing home, or hospice center and no medical treatment may be performed in the house, except that which is self administered. In order to elminate infectious risks to all our guests, some patients, and anyone currently ill or contagious, will be excluded from staying at the Fisher House.

Additionally, the Fisher House cannot be used for leisure visits, as a safe house, homeless shelter, or as transient housing for PCS, ETS, and retirement.

HOUSE RULES

Adherence to the house rules will ensure a safe and peaceful experience for all Fisher House residents. Any resident who refuses to comply with the house rules or live in harmony with other residents, will be asked to find other accomodations.

Family members are responsible for abiding by all house rules & policies and ensuring their guests do the same. A responsible party is required to sign our Resident's Agreement upon check-in.

Some of our house rules are:

  • Our home is tobacco free, to include smokeless, vapor & e-cigarettes.

  • Weapons, illegal drugs, alcohol and pets are not permitted on the property.

  • Anger, hostility, violence, threats, or disrespect towards staff and housemates will not be tolerated.

  • Only authorized guests may spend the night

  • Rank and awards while respected, are not given preferential treatment.

  • All food & beverages (except water) are to be consumed in the kitchen, dining room or outside! 

  • Children are the sole responsibility of their parent or guardian!  Children under the age of 10 must be supervised at all times. 

  • Any family member, regardless of age, who is not able to care for themselves should never be left alone in the house.

  • Quiet hours are from 9:00pm - 7:00am daily.

  • Visiting hours are 9:00am - 8:00pm daily, limited to a few visitors for short periods. You are responsible for your visitors and they must follow the same house rules!

  • Residents and their visitors must be appropriately dressed while at the house. Shirts, shoes and/or slippers must be worn at all times in public areas. Night wear may be worn outside guest rooms provided a housecoat or robe is also worn. Modesty is key here!

  • Residents are responsible for cleaning up after themselves in all areas of the house, and maintaining the cleanliness of their assigned room on a daily basis.

  • Anyone with MRSA, chicken pox, measles, tuberculosis, flu or any other contagious diseases/illnesses is not eligible to stay.

  • The furniture in the common rooms is shared by all - please keep feet off the furniture and do not allow children to play on it. The sofas are not to be used as a bed!

  • A complete list of house rules is provided in each guest room.

Staying at Fisher House is a privilege!
