Sight & Sound In-Patient Floors

This entry should be read by both PERC Staff and Tech Squad Volunteers.

Hello Volunteers:

I would like to clarify which in-patient units the PERC currently services with our Sight & Sound Program: Floor 8B of University Hospital and Floor 7W of the new C.S. Mott Children's Hospital and Von Voigtlander Women's Hospital.

We previously offered the program to patients located on Floor 8A of University Hospital; however, when the new hospital opened in December, those patients (bone marrow transplant) were relocated to 7W of the new hospital.

Floor 8A, University Hospital, is currently being renovated; I do not know if we will offer our program to patients on this floor when it reopens. I will keep you posted.

Finally, please remember that if a patient is transferred off of either 8B or 7W, they must return the laptop.

There has been some confusion regarding 7A and 7B of University Hospital and 7W of the new C.S. Mott Children's Hospital and Von Voigtlander Women's Hospital.

Unfortunately, since we do not currently have the resources to track devices on any floors other than 8B and 7W, patients must be instructed to return the laptops if they are transferred off the floor. If/when they return to 8B or 7W, they may once again checkout a laptop.

I know that it can get confusing with the various hospitals and floors, so if you have any questions regarding which in-patient units we service, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thank you for all your help and commitment to our patients!
