Your Safety is Our Priority

To ensure your safety as well as that of other patients, we ask the following:

  • Review safety protocols by viewing Channel 3 on your hospital television.
  • Send valuables home with a family member.
  • Use cell phones only in designated hospital areas, not patient rooms. Free local phone service is provided to patients.
  • Use only the drugs prescribed by your physician and administered by the hospital staff. Patients are not allowed alcoholic beverages or recreational drugs in the hospital.
  • Provide child safety restraints, as required by law, for children and infants leaving the hospital.
