safety

Maintaining a safe environment for patients, staff, and visitors is a major focus on the SilverCare unit. In order to keep everyone safe, we want you to know the following:

  • Staff will do frequent rounds on all patients, even at night. This means staff will enter a patient room during the night. Staff will not wake the patient, just check to assure that the patient is safe.

  • Unit doors are locked and monitored by staff. Recording cameras are located in the hallways, group rooms, and dining rooms. These are monitored by staff.

  • In the event of fire or severe weather, please follow instructions of staff.

  • All belongings will be searched upon admission and when brought in by family.

  • Room searches are conducted on a regular basis to ensure the unit is safe. Any unsafe items will be stored and either sent home with family or given to you upon discharge. Weapons and illicit drugs will be turned over to the Upson Regional Medical Center security.
