policy A04 : Nursing Policy: Care Of Money And Valuables

Patient care providers are to encourage patients to give any valuables, money or other items that could be easily lost (cell phones, I-Pods, jewelery of any type) to their families for safekeeping during their stay in the hospital, whenever feasible. Any valuables given to a family member are noted in the patient’s record. When disposition to a family member is not feasible, the care providers will strongly encourage patients to use the Medical Center’s safekeeping option for valuables. Eyeglasses or dentures are not to be placed in the safe; these are to be labelled and left with the patient or given to the family.
