Your safety is one of our most important goals. To help keep you
and your visitors safe, St. Mary's has a Security Team fully
trained to handle any emergency situation. Security Officers can be
found throughout the building and also at security posts located in
the main lobby, by the employee entrance and in the Emergency
Department waiting and treatment areas. The Security Office is
located on the first floor of the main Hospital building, between
the Reception Desk and Cashier's Office. A Security Officer can be
reached day or night, seven days a week, by picking up any Hospital
phone and dialing Ext. 4444.
At St. Mary's Hospital we recognize the need to maintain patient
and other information in a confidential manner. For this reason any
friends or family members that may call the Patient Information
Desk will only be given your admission status and the telephone
number for your room. Please be advised that you have the right to
determine the information the hospital may release about you. The
Patient Information Desk may be reached at 973-365-4517.
Wrist Identification Bands
The wrist identification band you received upon admission should
not be removed at any time during your stay. It provides positive
identification of you to all those who serve you and is a safeguard
for your protection.
