Fire and Disaster Safety
Drills are held occasionally by the hospitals in order to protect patients should a real emergency occur. Various bells and alarms sound during these procedures. Please remain in your room until the drill is over. In the event of a real emergency, remain in your room until the nursing staff gives you instructions.
For Your Safety
Our staff wants to make sure you or your family member will always receive the safest care while in the hospital. You will notice outside each room a colored star. We use these stars to alert our staff to a patient's risk for falls.
A red star is high risk for falls and requires assistance of two people.
A yellow star is moderate risk for falls and requires assistance of one person.
A green star is low fall risk. The patient is independent and requires no assistance.
We will also be verifying your NAME and DATE OF BIRTH prior to administering any medication, performing procedures, or diagnostic testing such as lab work and x-rays.
