Environment of Care

Our Environment of Care process considers the safety of our patients, visitors and employees from the perspective of our physical surroundings, work processes and operational procedures.

Policies, procedures, protocols and guidelines are developed and implemented to assure that our workplace is safe and that all persons know the proper responses to fire, how to handle hazardous materials and wastes, and respond to emergency and disaster situations.

In addition, the Environment of Care covers the security of our patients, visitors, and employees, and establishes mechanisms for appropriate maintenance of medical equipment and utilities. Environment of Care issues are administered by our Facilities Management and the Safety Departments.
