If you're staying at the hospital for a procedure or operation, we want you to feel as comfortable as possible.
During the admission process, we will review your:
- Current medicines
- 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
