Safer lobby hours at NIH go into effect July 10th.
by Seth Conners
As a continued effort to provide safety for hospital staff and members of the public, Northern Inyo Hospital has announced it’s new lobby hours to become effective on Sunday July 10th.
The new schedule will see the hospitals lobby open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekends and holidays. People who require lab services during the week are advised to arrive no later than 5:30 p.m., with the weekend lab hours remaining at 7:30 a.m. 12:30 p.m.
Visitors after 6 p.m. will now be asked to enter through the Emergency Department entrance at the rear of the hospital where security will be posted.
These changes will reduce Main Lobby hours but will improve security by limiting access points to the healthcare facility during overnight hours.
