Patients are able to get in and out of bed in Unit 2A much safer due to new bedside safety mats designed to prevent falls. The mats, which were made possible through a Volunteer Association/Health Sciences Foundation Family CARE grant, have beveled edges for easy patient transfers from wheelchairs and lifts, and non-slip surfaces and padding underneath.
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.
