Staff at St. Jude work to keep everyone safe on campus and in our housing facilities.
Please watch your child at all times in the hospital and in housing.
If you have concerns about your child’s safety due to custody or family conflicts, tell your social worker. Our Security team can meet with you to make a safety plan.
If you know that someone wants to visit the hospital who could put our campus at risk, please tell Security and your social worker.
St. Jude cannot be responsible for lost or stolen property.
Secure your personal property at all times.
Mark your items with your name and phone number. This will help staff return the items if they are lost.
If you find items left by other St. Jude families, please take them to the Guest Services desk in the Patient Care Center or Chili’s Care Center.
Only on-duty law enforcement officers may carry a handgun, firearm, or other weapon on hospital property. This includes housing facilities.
You may not have a weapon in a vehicle on St. Jude property. If you see a weapon on campus or in housing, call Security at 901-595-4444.
If you have a weapon with you when you arrive, please talk to the Security staff right away. They can make a plan with you to keep our campus safe until you can remove the weapon from campus.
Report all security-related events right away. This includes:
There are 6 call stations in parking lots across campus. Call stations are also near the elevators on every floor of the parking garages. If you need help at any time, day or night, push the button on a call station.
Call stations are for anyone who needs help. It doesn’t have to be an emergency. If you have car trouble, feel sick, see something suspicious, or need a ride to a building, push the call station button.
When you push the button, the call connects to the Security Control Room. The security control officer will send an officer to help you.
If you need to reach St. Jude Security at any time without going to a call station, dial 901-595-4444.
