  33. 33. Security  M9 is a secured/card access only unit which prevents unauthorized entry on to the unit and unauthorized exit (i.e., abduction).  Residents are assigned coded ID cards to allow access to M9 during their rotation.  Refer all visitors to the Guest Services or Unit Assistants; do not allow visitors to enter or exit M9 without checking with the unit or reception staff.  Anyone attempting to leave the unit via stairwells without coded ID cards will encounter a 15 second delay before the door releases. An alarm will sound in the RN Station and in MSK Security.  The assumption is that anyone using the stairwell without a coded ID is an unauthorized departure.  If a pediatric patient is seen leaving the unit via the stairwell (assumed to be suspected abduction, missing child, or unauthorized exit of a patient) or if you hear a door alarm, you must call Security (x7866) to inform them of unauthorized departure and identify the stairwell used (i.e. North or South)  a ‘Code Pink’ will be activated.
