In This Issue:
In an effort to ensure that our patients receive the highest quality care, BWH maintains their commitment to patient safety and privacy, all staff and employees are reminded that use of the service elevator is strictly reserved for the transport of patients and large equipment. Inappropriate use of the elevator, riding it when the other elevators are crowded, for example, has an adverse effect on patient safety and quality.
Misuse of the elevators can result in crowding and an increase in transport time, two factors that negatively impact how a patient feels physically and emotionally when travelling within the hospital.
To demonstrate the utmost respect for our patients and abide by the Hospital’s pledge to patient safety, confidentiality and quality care, all staff and employees are reminded to refrain from using the elevator unless transporting a patient or large equipment.
All elevator deficiencies or damage shoud be reported to Engineering at ext. 2-6720
