Safety & Security
To safeguard the patient’s treatment, medications from home should not be brought in to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center (WFBMC) and the use of medications(s) from home is discouraged. Medication(s) from home may only be administered if prescribed by the medical staff. Patients are not permitted to keep medications at the bedside.
To get your prescriptions filled fast and easy as you leave the hospital, drop by the WFBMC Outpatient Pharmacy. It is located next to the Gift Shop in the North Tower Lobby. Our Outpatient Pharmacy carries a large supply of quality pharmaceuticals and common over-the-counter products at great prices. Our state-of-the-art technology improves the safety of our prescription-filling process and decreases the time that you have to wait for your prescription to be filled.
The Outpatient Pharmacy accepts most prescription insurance plans.
Our pharmacists are available to discuss questions or concerns you may have regarding your prescriptions or over-the-counter medications.
We recommend you not bring valuables such as jewelry and cash with you to the hospital. Valuables should be left at home or with a family member. If this is not possible, they may be placed in a safe. WFBMC cannot assume responsibility for items of value unless deposited in the safe.
Please call the Admitting Office for this service at 336-716-3122.
No use of tobacco products or electronic cigarettes is allowed on medical center property or within any medical center vehicle. We discourage the use of tobacco products by medical center staff/faculty or visitors on properties adjacent to medical center properties, such as sidewalks, highway right-of-ways, and privately owned properties.
For your protection, WFBMC often conducts fire drills. If a drill occurs during your stay, remain calm and stay in your room until the staff directs you to do otherwise. The Medical Center is a fire-resistant building and staff is trained in fire protection. Elevators should not be used if a fire is suspected.
