The most precious patients in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit are receiving leading-edge care thanks to donors to the Health Sciences Foundation. Grants totaling $180,000 provided new isolettes to regulate body temperature, a safer shuttle to transport newborns in incubators, and equipment to provide breathing assistance for newborns with respiratory issues.
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.
