Thanks to a Volunteer Association/Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Foundation Family CARE Grant, renal patients now have access to new tuck-away belts that comfortably and safely house the patient’s catheter, keep it clean between uses, and hold it in the appropriate position on the abdomen. Over 100 belts have been purchased to provide to patients who can’t afford them. As well, aging hemodialysis machines are replaced annually through grants from the Health Sciences Foundation.
The Nutrition and Food Service team works collaboratively to ensure food is of high quality, nutritious and safe as well as compliant to prescribed diet orders.
Patient meals and snacks are prepared fresh by certified cooks and trained staff, using the cook/chill method.
Meal delivery times are approximately:
Each unit is equipped with a pantry kitchenette, stocked with items for patient consumption.
Meals are based on a menu cycle. If you have food preferences or allergies please inform your primary care provider, nurse, or dietitian. The Nutrition and Food Service Department is pleased to offer Expressly For You, a room service program where patients are able to place their meal orders through a Host/Hostess using iPad technology.
