Resident Evil 3 Hospital Safe Code | Nurses’ Station Safe Combination

While exploring in Resident Evil 3 remake, you’ll find a safe in the hospital containing a handy item. Unfortunately, finding the hospital safe code in RE3 remake can be somewhat tricky since it’s not in the immediate vicinity. Fortunately, we’ve tracked down the easily overlooked combination for the Nurses’ Station safe and have the location for you below.

What’s the Hospital safe code in Resident Evil 3 remake?

Resident Evil 3 Remake Hospital Safe Location

While you’re searching for the tape needed to open the voice lock to Dr. Bard’s office, you’ll come upon the Nurses’ Station on the second floor of the hospital. On the back counter of the room, you’ll see a safe that requires a combination to unlock. Unfortunately, the code isn’t nearby, and there aren’t any clues by the safe to help you guess the code.

For some reason, it took me a really long time to find the combo to the hospital safe. I mean, I looked for this thing for an hour or so. I probably walked right past it 20 times while I was searching for it, but it’s actually pretty easy to locate.

One thing to note is that you must open the safe while playing as Carlos. The item inside is specifically for his use. If you return to the Nurses’ Station as Jill without opening the safe as Carlos, you’ll find it has been popped open, and the item inside has been taken. Maybe Carlos went back for it offscreen.

If you just want a few hints to point you in the right direction, read on below. If you’re still stumped, we’ll have the combo, and details on how we found it, below.

Hints for finding the hospital safe code in Resident Evil 3 remake

  • It’s in an optional room.
  • The code is in a file.
  • The file is in a room with many X-Rays.

If you’re still having issues finding it, don’t feel bad. It appeared to me like the prompt to pick up the file containing the hospital safe combo doesn’t have the same detection range as typical items. As such, you have to get very close to it before it pops up.

Resident Evil 3 Remake Hospital Safe Code Location

The file containing the safe combo is located in the operating room. You’ll see it on top of a cabinet near the head of the bed in the center of the room.

The file is titled “RE: Lost Items,” and says:

To all employees:

We’ve been inundated with reports of lost items.

If you find something and it is unclear who it

belongs to, do not take it home. Please deposit

it in the Nurses Station safe.

The safe combination is:

9 clockwise, 3 counterclockwise.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Note, to spin the dial clockwise; you need to hold left on your analog stick (or A on the default keyboard controls). To turn it counterclockwise, you push it in the opposite direction, right (or D with default keyboard controls).

So, reading the file, we see the hospital safe code in Resident Evil 3 remake is:

  • Left 9
  • Right 3

You might be a bit confused, as every combination lock in RE2 remake and RE3 remake to this point has been three numbers. Well, you’re reading this code right. The hospital safe only has two numbers. Not very secure, huh?

When you open the safe, you’re rewarded with the last of Carlos’s weapon upgrades: the Dual Magazine (Assault Rifle). This upgrade doubles the ammo capacity of the Assault Rifle, which is immensely useful when taking on the Hunter Betas that infest the hospital towards the end of your adventure there.
