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.
Tele-Visitations are 1 hour video visits with family and friends by videoconference.
We can help keep you connected to family and friends while you are in hospital, or even as an outpatient. Your family may be in another heath facility or in almost any location with internet access. This is a patient driven service, please ask your healthcare provider about the service or contact the Telemedicine Department at extension 6711 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
