Patient Safety

Security at Saint Peter’s

Security officers are located throughout the hospital for your safety. Staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week, the Security Operations Center may be reached by dialing extension 6010.

Cell Phone Use

The use of cell phones can lead to electronic patient care equipment not working properly, and this may seriously harm a patient. Help us keep all patients safe by only using a cell phone in the hospital while in the designated areas.

Fire Drills

Fire drills are conducted regularly. In the event of an actual fire, the hospital will follow fire response procedures to ensure the safety of patients, visitors and staff. In the event of an emergency, dial 112 from any in-hospital phone.


Saint Peter’s University Hospital is committed to a smoke-free environment. Smoking is not permitted in the main hospital or in other Saint Peter’s Healthcare System facilities. In the interest of the health of our patients, visitors, employees and volunteers, we appreciate your cooperation in achieving this goal. Smoking is permitted in the designated smoking area located adjacent to the hospital’s main parking deck.
