River Crest Hospital is not responsible for any money or valuables you choose to keep on the unit during your stay. We provide a safe in our business office in which you may deposit cash or valuables. A staff member will enter a written inventory on the front of an envelope of all items you wish to deposit, including credit cards with account numbers and checks with check numbers. You will sign the envelope to verify that the list on the front is a full and accurate representation of the items inside. The staff member then seals the envelope and deposits it in the safe. If you elect not to deposit valuables in our safe, you will be solely responsible for any loss of cash or valuables while in the hospital, and you will be required to sign a release acknowledging you chose to retain cash or valuables on the unit while you were a patient at River Crest Hospital.
