To receive these free interpretation services, please speak with your nurse.
Safety & Security
Please inform your caregiver if you brought small electrical appliances such as a hair dryer or razor. For your safety, such appliances need to be checked to make sure their cords are safe.
If you hear a fire alarm (chimes or bells) or see flashing lights, please stay where you are until you receive further instructions from your caregiver. During an alarm, please leave all fire doors closed for your protection.
To ensure the safety of our patients, some units are locked from approximately 7 p.m. to 7 a.m., or as needed for security reasons. Please follow instructions on the doors to gain access to the unit.

If you get home and discover something was left behind, please call Guest Services at 816-276-4180 to see if it was placed in Lost and Found.
Special regulations are in effect in areas where patients are receiving oxygen. Electrically-operated equipment and aerosol products are not permitted. Absolutely no smoking is permitted in the hospital.
