Accessibility Statement

We are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience. To do so, we are actively working with consultants to update the website by increasing its accessibility and usability by persons who use assistive technologies such as automated tools, keyboard-only navigation, and screen readers.

We are working to have the website conform to the relevant standards of the Section 508 Web Accessibility Standards developed by the United States Access Board, as well as the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. These standards and guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. We believe that conformance with these standards and guidelines will help make the website more user friendly for all people.

Our efforts are ongoing. While we strive to have the website adhere to these guidelines and standards, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website. If, at any time, you have specific questions or concerns about the accessibility of any particular webpage, please contact WebsiteAccess@tenethealth.com so that we may be of assistance.

Thank you. We hope you enjoy using our website.

Patient Safety

One of our goals at Providence Children’s Hospital is the safety of your child. Your child has been admitted to the hospital and we are asking for your cooperation with the following safety measures:

 

  • When you need assistance with your child, turn on the call light or use the phone. The nurse's phone number is located on the white board in your room.
  • Always raise the side rail of the crib/youth bed before stepping away.
  • Help us prevent falls, do not leave children unattended on furniture.
  • Please inform the nurse when you leave the unit.
  • When taking your child for a walk, make sure the IV tubing is off the floor and without tension on the line.
  • When taking your child for a ride in the wagon, make sure the safety belt is securely fastened around the child's waist.
  • When your child is out of bed, make sure your child wears slippers with rubber treads on the bottom. No bare feet are allowed.
  • Do not allow your child to run in the hallway.

We care about your child's safety and thank you for your cooperation.
