Beginning March 3, 2014, in order to create an even safer environment for our patients, staff, and visitors, Saint Vincent Hospital is implementing a Visitor Management Program and a “Quiet Time” Program for our patients on all areas to promote a healing environment.
What Does This Mean For Me?
If you plan on visiting with your loved one later than 8pm you will need to be issued a visitor’s badge. This will work well as “Quiet Time” will be from 8pm until 9pm and that will give you time to get your badge while the patients are resting. “Quiet Time” is found to create a restful environment and promote a better sleep pattern for patients.
Where Do I Receive A Badge?
You can be issued a badge in two locations.
1. The Emergency Room Waiting Area
2. The 3 North Entrance Greeter Station
How Does The Visitor Management Program Work?
You will need to present a photo ID to the public safety officer stationed at one of the two locations. If you do not have a photo ID, your photo will be taken and a badge will be issued to you.
Please Note: These badges expire after 12 hours, at which point, if you plan on staying, you will need to be issued another badge. Long term badges are also available.
If you have any questions please contact the Department of Public Safety at 508-363-6161.
