Please understand that we are here to care for our patients. For that reason,
we must ask for your cooperation with the following guidelines.
- Media representatives must remain only in designated areas unless accompanied
by a CaroMont Health media liaison.
- Media representatives must wear a photo ID/press credentials at all times.
- Media vehicles must be parked in designated parking areas.
- Unmarked media vehicles must display a media parking pass.
- Media vehicles and/or equipment may not block or impede traffic flow on
hospital and public roadways or streets.
- Media representatives may not approach, photograph, shoot video images
or make audio recordings at any time of any patients, visitors, staff,
physicians or volunteers without the presence and permission of a CaroMont
Health media liaison.
- Media representatives may not use any mast or signal transmission equipment
that would interfere with air medical operations.
- Media outlets may not operate any aircraft within close proximity to CaroMont
Health campuses that would interfere with air medical operations, or create
distracting and unpleasant noise for our patients.
- In absence of the Public Affairs Director or staff members, inquiries regarding
condition reports should be directed to Administration, and if they are
not available, to the nursing supervisor on duty. Standard patient conditions
are: Critical, Serious, Fair, Good or Treated and Released.
- Non-urgent media calls should not be directed to the nursing supervisor
on duty as their primary responsibility is patient care.
