What We Are Doing:
Our policy at Peace Harbor Hospital requires that nurses use at least two distinct ways to confirm who you are and what you are here for before any treatment. For example, having you state your name and date of birth and compare this information to your name bracelet. We review records regularly to ensure this is done every time.
