Respect for others and for the equipment

Please show respect for the staff, other patients and their visitors. No verbal or physical violence can be tolerated and may result in criminal prosecution. You are responsible for the hospital equipment placed at your disposal. Please treat it with care. You will be responsible for the cost of any deliberate damage you may cause.

Peace and quiet

To respect everyone’s right to rest, try to limit the number of visitors you receive at any one time. Please keep to the permitted visiting hours. Be considerate of the peace and quiet of the patients in the neighbouring beds by turning down the volume on your radio or laptop.

Its use is generally tolerated in hospital, except in operating theatres or examination rooms, for safety reasons (possible interference with medical devices). To preserve the peace and quiet of patients in neighbouring beds, please use your mobile phone with discretion. Avoid loud conversations and making or receiving calls after 9 pm.
