Our Culture of Quiet
Rest is an important part of the healing process. In order to promote a restful and quiet environment, we observe daily quiet hours from 8 PM. to 6 AM. Please let the patient’s care team know if there’s anything we can do to ensure his or her quiet time is restful.

Electronic Device Use
Please be courteous to those in and around a patient’s room when using electronic devices like cell phones, iPods, and handheld video games. We encourage the use of headphones when possible. If you have questions about usage, please ask a member of the patient’s care team.
