Safety Tips

Safety is a high priority at Baylor Scott & White Heart and Vascular Hospital. We understand its importance and will do everything to provide a safe and comfortable experience for you and your family.

Here are some safety tips to keep in mind throughout your stay with us.

Your patient bed

Designed for your comfort and safety, each bed has an electrical control with which you can raise and lower the foot and head. There are side rails that may be kept up at night or after you receive anesthesia or for support as you get out of bed. A bedside call button gives you immediate contact for nursing assistance at any time.

Valuables

We suggest that you leave any extra money, medication, credit cards, wallets and jewelry with a trusted friend or family member.

Personal medical care items

Please take care not to leave eyeglasses, dentures, hearing aids or CPAP/BIPAPs on your meal tray or bed, as they may accidentally be lost or discarded. Your nurse can provide a special case to store these items while they are not in use.

Children

For their safety, an adult must accompany children at all times. Children who are not visiting a patient must stay in the waiting area with an adult. Any child who has an infectious illness or has been exposed to one is not allowed in the patient care areas.

Infection control

Nobody likes to get sick, and we take extra care to protect our guests and ourselves from infection. We advise that you wash your hands frequently with soap and warm water, and especially before eating, after using the restroom, after sneezing or coughing. Follow these helpful tips when you cough or sneeze:

  • Cover your mouth with a tissue when sneezing or coughing. Discard the tissue in a trash bin and wash your hands when you finish. Keep tissues handy at home, at work, and in your pockets.
  • When you don't have a tissue, cover your mouth and nose with the crook of your elbow. Again, wash your hands afterward.
  • Covering your mouth and nose and avoiding close contact with infected people is also helpful.

Avoiding falls

Always call your nurse for assistance by using the call button before you get in and out of your bed or a chair. Be sure to wear slippers or shoes with non-skid soles and turn on the lights before you get out of bed at night. Get in and out of bed slowly and be careful when bending or leaning. Alert your nurse if a spill occurs. As we say, "Call...Don't fall."

Security

Baylor Scott & White Heart and Vascular Hospital is equipped with an advanced security system, and we provide security escorts 24 hours a day. Our parking areas are secured as well. We have controlled access on the 6th floor everyday from 7:00 p.m. until 5:30 a.m and controlled access on the 5th floor on Saturdays and Sundays. Visitors may ring one of the buzzers at the doors for entry. Buzzers are located next to every entrance. To request a security escort, call 817.922.4444.

Our overall philosophy on safety is "Speak Up!" which stands for:

  • Speaking up if you have questions or concerns and not being afraid to ask again and clarify
  • Paying attention to the care you receive
  • Educating yourself about your illness, medical tests and treatments
  • Asking a trusted family member or friend to be your advocate and provide support
  • Knowing what medicines you take and why you take them
  • Using a hospital or care center that has been checked out and meets standards
  • Participating in all decisions about your treatment

Your co-pay, deductible and/or co-insurance are due at time of service. Payments can be made by cash, debit cards, personal check, or by credit card (VISA, MasterCard, Discover and American Express).

If you have any questions regarding pre-certification, please let us know. If we are unable to obtain a pre-certification, we may need to cancel or reschedule your service(s).
