Zero Now Patient Safety Initiative - Randall Children's Hospital is committed to the quality, safety and value of the care that we provide. Our people, patients, community and world deserve to have a children's hospital where transforming the safety and quality of care we deliver is a never-ending priority. "Zero" is the only acceptable goal related to patient safety, and one that we all strive for. That is why we've created our Zero Now program to guide us in our journey to zero preventable harm.

Patient security and health.
Providing our patients, families, visitors, staff and doctors with a secure and healthy environment is important to us. All families/visitors need to check in with the security guard next to the elevators in the main lobby. Learn more.
Patients need care. Mornings and early afternoons are busy times for patients, doctors and nurses. Treatments, personal care and consultations usually happen between 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Patients need rest. Please keep visits brief and limit the number of visitors. On the day of surgery, check with the nursing staff before entering a patient's room. If you'd like to call a patient's room phone, please do it before 9 p.m.
- Patients need privacy. You may be asked to leave briefly during procedures, treatments, or other care activities.
