You must register with Human Resources Occupation Medicine (HROM) to use the room on an ongoing basis.
There is no fee for the use of the lactation room. To register for the room please complete the
Lactation Program Participation Agreement
(pdf) and submit to HROM.
You are also required to complete the sign-in sheet, located at the front desk in the Occupational Medicine Clinic (OMC) and in the lactation rooms at NSLS-II, to indicate the days and times you would like to have access to the room.
Users may access the lactation room only for the purposes of expressing, storing and collecting breast milk.
The door to the lactation room in building 490 should be kept locked.
Users of the lactation room are responsible for bringing their own breast pumps. Lock boxes will be provided to secure breast
milk in the refrigerator.
It is the responsibility of everyone using the lactation room to maintain a clean room ready for the next user.
All breast milk spills must be cleaned using the cleaning solutions provided. (Please notify OMC of breast milk
spills that occur and have been cleaned).
Expressed milk stored in the refrigerator must be labeled with user’s name, department, telephone extension
and date the milk was expressed.
It is the responsibility of each user to remove stored milk at the end of the business day. In the event
of a power failure, during normal work hours (8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.), an OMC staff member will contact users to
retrieve their stored breast milk.
It is the responsibility of each user to ensure that the refrigerator is kept clean.
Please limit use of the space to activities associated with expressing milk only.
Please ensure that the key card is returned to OMC and that you indicate on the sign-out
sheet the time that the key was returned.
