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.
Visiting the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre for outpatient services can be a positive experience or can be challenging for other children/families. The Paediatric Team strives to create a welcoming and kid friendly environment to provide the most positive experience as possible.
Paediatric Outpatient Services provides services to children from infancy up to 17 years including:
We ask that only parents or primary caregivers accompany your child to his or her appointment to reduce stress and anxiety on your child, and on other patients. Visitors or siblings are asked not to come to the Paediatric Outpatient Services unit. There is limited space at each patient care area.
