To ensure the safety of patients, visitors, and staff, 6 Ashman and 6 Rose have a security door policy for evening hours. Between the hours of 10 pm and 5 am daily, visitors should go straight through waiting area to signs which will direct them to the entrances for both units. Visitors must ring doorbell to gain access to each nursing unit. Staff badges will work for access throughout the evening. In the event of a security risk the unit will go on lockdown and visitors will need to utilize the doorbell for access.
Each patient's family is asked to designate one or two family members to serve as the primary contact person for updates. The family contact person can then relay information to other family and friends, allowing staff time to focus on care for the patient.
To allow staff adequate time for communicating patient care updates during shift changes, contact persons are asked to refrain from calling the units between the hours of 6:30 - 8 am and 6:30 - 8 pm.
Spiritual Care staff and volunteers are available to support families and provide spiritual care for critically ill patients.
