Close Observation of Patients

Doctor attending family

In certain circumstances, our staff may identify that patients might need “close observation” during a hospital stay. Such reasons may include an increased potential to fall, wander, become disoriented/confused, or may disrupt their medical treatment.

We are committed to providing the appropriate level of care for such patients through close observation by a specially trained patient care associate. A family member is always welcome regardless of whether or not a patient requires close observation, but a family member is not a substitute for trained personnel in order to ensure safety.
