SUPPORTING SAFE ENVIRONMENTS HOW CAN YOU HELP?

• Due to allergies/sensitivities, please refrain from wearing perfume, cologne, and personal – care scented products such as deodorants, hand lotions, hair products, body powders and lotion to your appointments.
• Persons accompanying you to your appointments should also be reminded of our scent policy.
• If sending flowers to someone in hospital please ensure they are low fragrance. (Note: freesia, lilacs, lavender, lilies, hyacinth and peonies are highly fragrant and should be avoided).
• Patients who come for care at the Hospital and are wearing scented products may be asked to wash and / or change their clothing. Tests and procedures may be rescheduled.
• If you are experiencing fever, respiratory illness, vomiting, nausea or diarrhea please reschedule your appointment. We would also ask that you refrain from visiting patients in the Hospital until your symptoms have fully resolved.

Together we can make our hospital a safe and healthy workplace.
