Staying at the Hospital

Our goal is to make your hospital stay as comfortable as possible.

Checking In

During the admission process, we will review your:

  • Current medicines
  • Allergies
  • Medical history
  • Special needs
  • Belongings, listing what you've brought or storing them in a safe
  • What at-home services or equipment you may need when you go home

Your ID Band & Safety

For your safety, you will also receive an ID band to wear on your wrist during admission. To ensure your safety, we will also:

  • Confirm your name and date of birth before performing procedures or giving you medicines
  • Use a computer scanner to decrease healthcare errors
  • Put a red wristband on if you have allergies (including latex) 
  • Give you a yellow wristband if you are at risk for falling
