Lancaster General Health is a tobacco-free organization. Tobacco use of any kind is prohibited anywhere on Women & Babies Hospital grounds.

Cellular phones are permitted in most areas, except triage, post-surgical recovery areas, and the NICU. Bluetooth devices and two-way radios are not permitted inside the hospital, as they can interfere with sensitive electronic equipment. Videotaping is prohibited during delivery.

Safety Is Our Top Priority

We take your family’s safety and security very seriously and provide 24-hour on-site security, supplemented by the latest in security technology and an identification badge process. Wrist bands are required to stay on your newborn at all times to properly identify your baby for treatment, medications, and any procedures that are necessary.

Upon admission, you may receive one or more wrist identification bands, which should not be removed until you are discharged from the hospital. The hospital uses bands for patient/parent identification and to communicate medical information to hospital staff. Color-coded bands are used as medical alert devices for specific conditions. To avoid confusion, do not wear charity bracelets or other bands on your wrist when you come to the hospital.
