Due to safety concerns and life safety code regulations, the following items may not be brought into the facility:
1.) Knives or other sharp objects or tools, even pocket knives or screwdrivers.
2.) Electric blankets or heating pads, curling irons, hair dryers, etc. – Due to fragile skin and an inability to regulate the exact temperature of these items, they are prohibited. Residents can be assisted with hair care in our beauty shop with temperature regulated dryers. We also have a number of temperature regulated blanket warmers to supply residents with warm blankets.
3.) Extension cords – There are strict fire safety regulations about the type of cords that may be utilized. If your resident is in need of one, let us know and our maintenance department will supply the appropriate kind.
4.) Cigarettes, e-cigarettes, lighters, etc.- Allegan County Medical Care Community is an entirely smoke free facility and surrounding campus, and is the home to some residents who utilize oxygen and who have respiratory conditions. Smoking must take place off of facility grounds. Thank you for your consideration.
Please contact me with any questions or concerns. -Kimberly Turcott, Administrator (269) 673
