Safety Policies

Monroe Surgical Hospital

The following safety policies are in place for the protection of you (our patient), your family/friends (our visitors), physicians and our staff.

No Smoking Policy

It is the policy of Monroe Surgical Hospital, the medical staff, and administration that the facility shall remain a smoke-free environment.

Security of Valuables

We recommend that you leave your valuables at home. You should need only personal items during your stay. If you are unable to make arrangements for your valuables, please alert our staff so that we may secure your valuables in our safe until you can retrieve them. You will be given a receipt for your valuables for use when retrieving the valuables from us upon your discharge.

Security Escort Service

We also have your personal safety in mind. Security Escort Service is available upon request to assist you to your vehicle in our parking lot. The doors to our facility are locked at 6:00 PM. Your family, friends, and loved ones can enter the building at the Med/Surg Unit. Nurses monitor this entrance via video camera and will allow access to the appropriate personnel and visitors.

Lost Items

Should you misplace an item during your stay, please contact your caregiver and/or the administrative office at your earliest convenience. Dentures, eyeglasses, hearing aids, contacts should be placed in protective containers, clearly marked, when not in use. This avoids breakage and/or loss of the item. Containers are available for your use.
