Thanks to a Volunteer Association/Health Sciences Foundation Family CARE Grant, the Health Sciences Centre’s patient consent form is being translated to Oji-Cree, Cree and Ojibway. Aboriginal patients who do not speak or understand English will now have a form in their language to clearly understand what treatment or tests they are being asked to consent to.
Exposure to strong scents and fragrances in the environment can cause discomfort as well as directly impact the health of sensitive individuals. For the comfort and health of all, scented and fragrant products are not to be worn in the Health Sciences Centre. Also, strongly scented flowers (ie: Lilies) may not be accepted on particular units. Please ask the unit or ask the florist to provide mildly scented flowers.
