Visitor Resources

A quiet, peaceful environment

At Tufts Medical Center, we want patients to enjoy quality health care in a comfortable, peaceful environment.

If another patient, staff member, or visitor is too noisy, let someone on your care team know. We’ll speak with them first. We also offer eye coverings, earplugs, and headphones for patients. Just ask us.

If you’re a visitor, or another patient, please remember the people around you. By keeping conversations and TV volume low, you can make a huge difference in another person’s care experience.

Have a noise issue?

If you have a concern, it’s always best to talk with your care team first. But we also have a patient liaison on hand if you have further concerns. You can reach him or her at:

Keeping the air clean

At Tufts Medical Center, we’re proud to be tobacco-free. Smoking or tobacco use of any kind, including e-cigarettes, is banned inside or within 25 feet of any buildings owned, leased or occupied by Tufts Medical Center.

This includes buildings and grounds (building entryways, walkways, parking garages and parking lots), and personal vehicles while on Tufts Medical Center property.

Visiting a patient

We offer over-the-counter nicotine replacement products in the Outpatient Pharmacy on the Atrium 3rd floor.

We can only sell nicotine replacement products to those who are at least 18 years old. We’ll check too – we need a government- issued identification card, like a driver’s license.
