  • Due to hospital security policies, all items accompanying the patient to the hospital will be examined by patient care staff.
  • Limit clothing to what will fit within the standard-size bureaus in your room. Please refrain from bringing any sexually provocative clothing or items with alcohol- or drug-related logos.
  • Weapons, potentially dangerous objects, alcohol, illicit drugs and medications are not allowed anywhere in the hospital.
  • All electronic devices and equipment must be battery-operated; electrical cords are prohibited.
  • Please leave cell phones and all valuables, including jewelry, at home.
  • YNHPH is not responsible for damage, loss or theft of belongings. Safes are available on the patient care unit for the storage of any valuables that must accompany the patient.
