We Strive to make our Hospital Safe and Secure
Memorial Hospital respects the patient's right to privacy and security. There are walled partitions or cubicle curtains in all patient care areas to provide privacy and respect without visual obstruction to the nursing staff or other hospital caregivers. In the emergency department separate exam rooms and/or cubicle curtains assure visual privacy while spacing of exam areas affords auditory privacy. On the Nursing Care Units, bathing, positioning and the use of bedpans and bedside commodes are accomplished assuring patient privacy and comfort. Cubicle curtains are pulled and any visitors are asked to step outside the room during physician visits and/or patient care requiring privacy. At all outpatient sites patients are interviewed out of hearing range of other patients or visitors. All of the HIPAA Privacy/Security Laws are complied with by this facility.
