>> Safety & Security
Hospital staff and volunteers are easily identified by their photo identification badge. Please notify a staff member immediately if you observe any suspicious activity or individuals, have any security concern, or if you have lost a personal item.
SHHA staff members must identify themselves. All staff and volunteers are required to wear their hospital photo identification badges. This badge assures you that the person who delivers your care is a hospital employee.
When you are admitted to hospital, an identification armband will be applied to your wrist. Patient identification is a key factor in the safe delivery of care and letting people know who you are is one way you can help to make your health care safer! You may or may not have an additional coloured bracelet applied depending on your needs and this serves as a way to communicate with all team members. PLEASE DO NOT remove your bracelet until you are discharged from hospital. We request that you notify nursing staff if you require a replacement bracelet.
A wide range of security measures are in place for your safety and protection including 24-hour video surveillance cameras and locked doors.
SHHA is committed to providing a safe and secure working environment, free of violence and aggression. We will not accept any act of violence or aggression toward any member of staff. Incidents of verbal or physical abuse, threats or assaults may be dealt with by calling the Ontario Provincial Police as necessary.
