Preventing Infections: Please help prevent the spread of infections. If any of your child’s family or friends have a cold, cough, fever, or rash, please ask them not to visit until they feel better. Ask your child’s visitors to clean their hands with Purell® before they come into your child’s room.
Balloon Policy: Latex balloons are prohibited in the Hospital. For the health and safety of our patients, balloons and flowers (fresh cut, artificial, and dried arrangements) are prohibited in all intensive care units, recovery rooms, operating rooms, nurseries, labor and delivery suites, and oncology and transplant units.
No Smoking Policy: NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital is a completely smoke-free environment—indoors and outdoors. Smoking is prohibited in Hospital buildings, at entrances, on all outside grounds, and in gardens, courtyards, and parking facilities.
