Valuables and Personal Belongings
Atrium cannot be responsible for personal belongings. We strongly recommend that you send jewelry, credit cards, cash, and other valuables home or place them in the hospital safe. Nurses can assist you with the necessary paperwork for depositing your valuables in the safe.
These suggestions will help protect personal belongings during your hospital stay:
- Keep hearing aids, eyeglasses, and dentures in appropriate containers when not in use.
- Keep clothing items in a closet or drawer when not in use.
- Do not leave valuables on meal trays or in bed linen.
- Do not wrap dentures, partials, jewelry, or hearing aids in tissue where they may accidentally be thrown away.
- Put your name on personal items (or ask your nurse for assistance).
- Check your room carefully before changing rooms or going home.
If you lose something, notify your nurse immediately so hospital staff can help assist in locating your missing item.
If you need additional assistance with personal belongings, you are encouraged to ask a nurse.
Court-Ordered Restraining Orders
For your protection, you should notify the hospital and provide copies of any restraining orders issued against family members or visitors who may attempt to see you in the hospital.
Special regulations are in effect when patients are receiving oxygen. You and your visitors are asked not to use aerosol products, battery-operated equipment, or electrical appliances from home.
For the protection of patients, visitors, and staff, Atrium regularly conducts fire and disaster drills. If a drill occurs, there is no reason for patients or visitors to be alarmed. The hospital is a fire-resistant building and the staff is trained to respond to fire and other emergencies.
