  • Safety Features at Metro Health Hospital

    Safe and Compassionate Health Care

    Metro Health Hospital has several programs and procedures in place to make it safer and easier for you to receive high-quality, compassionate care.

    To Decrease the Potential for Infection/Contamination:

    • Hand-washing sinks in every room as well as hand sanitizers placed throughout the facility
    • All private rooms which reduces contact with other patients and their germs
    • Decontamination rooms that allow for steam-lined handling of infectious/contaminated patients
    • Outpatient departments located closest to the entrance decreases the amount of unnecessary traffic through inpatient areas
    • On stage/off stage concept significantly decreases cross-traffic among patients, staff and supplies, and the public

    To Provide Overall Improved Safety:

    • State-of-the-art access control system, fire alarm system, and infant security system that all communicate to a central command center

    To Reduce the Potential for Falls:

    • Handrails in many hallways and other areas
    • Heated sidewalks at main public entrances
    • Floor patterning in patient rooms designed to minimize contrasts for visually-impaired and elderly

    To Promote Standardization of Care to all Patients:

    • All rooms designed the same – equipment in same location, etc.
    • Standardization of nurse call system throughout the hospital

    To Promote Safe Patient Handling:

    • Over-the-bed lift devices in several rooms

    To Promote the Health and Well-being of Patients, Staff, Visitors and others:

    • Non-smoking campus
    • Increased indoor air quality through low-emitting materials and increased ventilation rates

    To Promote Patient-Centered Care:
