Patient Safety & Security

Infection Prevention

As part of Penn Highlands healthcare’s ongoing infection prevention practices, good hand hygiene is recommended for all individuals. Dispensers containing hand sanitizer are located in various areas within the hospital. Individuals are encouraged to use the hand sanitizer as needed.

Tobacco Free Campus

For the health of our patients, visitors, and staff the entire Tyrone Regional Health Network campus is tobacco free.

Patient Valuables

Patients are advised not to bring valuables such as cash, jewelry or other items to the hospital as the hospital cannot take responsibility for valuables retained by patients. It is suggested that any patient valuables be sent home with family members.
