Safety Policies

Valuables

Please leave all valuables at home. Items such as jewelry, expensive clothing, or other costly items should not be brought to the hospital. The hospital is not responsible for the loss or damage to any personal property kept in your room. If an item must be secured, please ask a nurse to arrange for the hospital's Security Office to assist you.

Electrical Appliances

Electrical appliances from home are not permitted on the unit. Special permission may be granted in some instances. All electrical appliances brought from home must be examined by the Biomedical Engineering Department prior to use.

Cell Phones

Use of cell phones is not permitted anywhere near any patient care units.

Non-smoking Policy

Smoking is not permitted in any part of NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. If you wish to smoke, you may do so outside the hospital in designated areas away from entrances and doorways.

Staff Identification

Every staff member and volunteer is required to wear identification badges that include their photograph, name and department. If you are concerned about the identity of a visitor, notify a member of your staff's unit.

If you have concerns regarding security, please contact the Security Office, which is open at all times.
