Birth Certificate and Social Security Number Assignment
After your newborn is born during your hospital stay, a Birth Registrar
staff member will visit you in your room to complete the necessary information
for the filing of your baby’s birth certificate. In order to complete
the birth certificate information, we must have your baby’s name.
To ensure that the birth records process proceeds smoothly for you, we
would like to ask you to complete the Certificate Intake Form that will
be given to you after delivery. This will ensure that the Birth Registrar
has all the information needed to prepare the birth certificate for your child.
As a courtesy to our parents, we can help you obtain a social security
number for your newborn. In order to do so, we must have your baby’s
name at the time the birth certificate is completed. Your child’s
social security card will be forwarded to you within five to eight weeks
from the Social Security Administration Office.
During your hospital stay, you and your support person will be served a
Celebration Meal. This is Covenant’s way of congratulating you on
your new addition and expressing our gratitude for choosing Covenant as
your hospital of choice.
A representative from dietary will visit your room to take your order from
a choice of steak, chicken cordon bleu, or lasagna.
