Your Safety

Smoke-free environment
Cigarettes and smoking materials are not sold at Northern Nevada Medical Center, and smoking is strictly prohibited throughout the hospital. Patients, visitors, and staff may smoke only in the designated smoking area located at the picnic table section adjacent to the physician parking lot.

Fire drills
For your protection, the hospital regularly conducts fire and disaster drills. If a drill occurs while you are here, please remain in your room and do not become alarmed. The hospital is a fire-resistant building, and the staff is trained in fire protection.

Every medicine that you receive in the hospital is reviewed, prepared, and delivered by a licensed and registered pharmacist. The pharmacist screens your medications to prevent drug interactions and reactions. Once you are discharged, your prescriptions can be filled in our pharmacy located on the first floor.

The pharmacy hours of operation are 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekends.

Valuables or lost items
Patients are asked not to bring items of value to the hospital. If you do bring anything of value, it should be deposited in the safe in the admitting office located on the ground floor in the lobby. You will be given a written receipt for all items, which must be presented when you withdraw them. The hospital does not accept responsibility for items of value unless they are deposited in the safe. If you lose something, please notify your nurse immediately, who will report the loss to security services.

Cellular phones
In an effort to insure the safety and well being of all our patients, the hospital safety committee requests that cell phones be turned off when in the vicinity of patient monitoring equipment. Thank you for your cooperation.
