Alcohol Use: In order to minimize the risk of alcohol interacting with other medications, the use of alcohol must be ordered by the Physician. The alcohol will be securely kept in the Medication Room and will be dispensed by the Nurse.

Emergency Response: Fire Alarms. With the sounding of the fire alarm, you and your visitors are requested to remain where you are and follow the directions of the staff during a drill or fire alarm.

Security: Key Pads for Secured Areas. Keypads have been installed on all external doors for the security of residents and staff. An intercom is available for visitors who may not have the access code. Access codes are provided to family members on move-in. Dania Home is secured from 11:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. Keypads will not be operative during this time. Visitors at this time may use the Intercom at the front door or call the Nurse to be allowed entry.

Smoking: For those residents able to smoke safely and independently a smoking gazebo is located on the main floor grounds. Staff monitor residents in the smoking area on a regular basis and accompany residents into the smoking area as needed. Staff must leave the smoking area before residents light their cigarettes and begin smoking. Smoking for Staff, volunteers, contractors and visitors on organization’s owned premises is prohibited.
