Wireless and Electronic Devices
Patients and visitors may not use wireless communication and electronic devices in critical care areas, i.e., ICU, Operating Room and Diagnostic Imaging or within one meter of medical monitoring/controlling devices. Patients and visitors may use wireless communications and electronic devices in non-critical care areas, i.e., lobbies, main entrances, waiting areas and most nursing units. Please check with nursing staff before using a wireless communication or electronic device.
If you must use your cell phone, please speak in a low voice so as not to disturb the privacy and comfort of other patients and visitors.
