Bedside Whiteboard

Whiteboards communicate care plans to health care providers, patients and families. Additional information, such as our Discharge Letter and Home First information are attached to your whiteboard to assist with our goal that all patients receive the ‘right care' in the ‘right location'.

Social Media & Photos/Videos/Audio Recordings

Social Media sites like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram are a great way to keep connected to your family and friends. For the comfort and privacy of other patients and staff, please don't take or share pictures, videos or audio recordings without their permission.
