Your security

Security guards

They are recognizable by their uniforms (blue pullovers and beige trousers).  They work round the clock to control site access and ensure the general security of the premises. They also might bring back patients who are disorientated or lost and intervene in interpersonal conflicts. If you need to contact them, please refer to the healthcare staff in your unit.

An emergency response centre at the CERN

In May 2015, the HUG and CERN opened an emergency response centre on Swiss territory. The result of a collaboration carried out under the auspices of federal and Geneva authorities, it aims to improve safety on the sites of the European Organisation for Nuclear Research.

Your identity wristband

Upon admission, you receive a wristband with your surname, first names, sex and date of birth, which must be worn on the wrist. This wristband contributes to the safety of your care, by helping to verify your identity when you receive treatment or undergo an examination. During your stay, your identity is verified many times.


Care quality and safety are our priorities.We also strive to provide our patients and their relatives with the most pleasant conditions for their admission and stay.The spirit of service at HUG is a series of "little pluses" that make going to the hospital easier for you.
