Weapons Prohibited On Hospital Campus
This policy is part of our commitment to the safety of our patients, visitors,
medical staff and employees. Weapons, whether concealed or not, are prohibited
in all buildings on the Valley Presbyterian Hospital (VPH) campus and
off-site buildings operated by VPH. This includes any object used to intimidate
or inflict bodily harm such as firearms, blades, knives, brass knuckles,
or pepper spray, and applies to all persons entering a VPH operated building
with the exception of on-duty law enforcement officers with authority
to enforce federal, state or county law. All persons entering may be subject
to a safety screening for any weapons. If any weapon is found in the possession
of a visitor or patient it will be confiscated for the remainder of their
stay. Persons attempting to enter with any weapons will be given the opportunity
to leave it in their vehicle. Otherwise, it must be left with hospital
Security staff for secure storage until departing the hospital.
Medical Marijuana and Illegal Substances Prohibited On Hospital Campus
Our goal in developing this policy is to support safe and effective care,
and your cooperation in helping us remain compliant with federal law is
appreciated. We recognize that state law authorizes marijuana use in limited
quantities for recreational use and for patients with certain medical
conditions, however, it is illegal to possess marijuana under federal
law. To comply with this law, Valley Presbyterian Hospital (VPH) does
not permit use of recreational or medical marijuana in any building on
the VPH campus and off-site buildings operated by VPH. This policy also
does not permit our physicians to provide certification to patients for
medical marijuana while under their care. If a patient or visitor possesses
medical marijuana or an illegal substance on VPH premises, hospital Security
staff will ask the individual to arrange for its immediate removal. If
a patient or visitor is unwilling or unable to remove it, it will be collected
and appropriately disposed of in accordance with hospital policy.
