I sent a baby gift basket week to a friend in the hospital. I quickly learned the difficulty of sending a package to an organization that requires privacy for it’s ‘clients’. Depending on the nurse, you might not even find out if the recipient is a patient if the nurse believes patient privacy is required in the instance you are phoning. Another issue could be the receiving department. Often times, FedEx or another major carrier has to give it to a receiving department who will then pass it on to the appropriate floor. Sometimes, this dance is strained and toes get stepped on. Have a peek at our page on baby gift basket etiquette.
