To further enhance the comfort and safety of patients in the Women's Care Center (WCC), Kent has implemented a new electronic security access system. This system is used in conjunction with other patient safety programs to provide a comfortable and secure environment for all.
- Access to the patient care unit and the neonatal special care nursery is by key card only.
- Patients admitted to the WCC will receive a key card for a designated family member.
- Other friends and family members visiting WCC patients will contact the nursing station through an intercom to announce their arrival.
These features will be explained to patients during prenatal education and/or the admission process.
