Welcome to CHEO

PHILOSOPHY OF CARE AT CHEO: Our Commitment to Patient and Family-Centred Care

CHEO is firmly committed to patient and familycentred care. The care we provide is anchored in respect, recognizing the expertise and continuous role of the family in their child or youth’s life. At CHEO, families are equal partners on the health care team. CHEO recognizes that a family includes individuals that offer comfort and love to a patient, while also providing emotional, spiritual and physical support. In order to make this philosophy a reality at CHEO, we value respect, communication, collaboration/partnerships and support. For more information about CHEO’s Philosophy of Care and how it is being implemented, please contact our Coordinator for Patient and Family Centred Care at extension 2203.

Making a difference in the lives of children, youth and families.


Languages Spoken CHEO is committed to providing services in either English or French. When your child is admitted, you will be asked in which language you wish to be addressed. We will strive to accommodate your language preference. Several areas throughout the hospital have been designated as bilingual and can provide services in French and English 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Directions to CHEO By Bus: Two OC Transpo buses stop at CHEO: No. 16 and No. 106.

General Information

general information

Please call the OC Transpo (www.octranspo.com) information line at 613-741-4390 for schedule details.

By Car: CHEO is near most major roads/highways in the National Capital Region. It is approximately a 10-minute drive from downtown Ottawa and a 20-minute drive from the airport. Children’s Hospital signs are posted along major roads.

Parking Visitors may park in lot “A” beside the hospital. Parking is $3.50 per half hour, with a daily maximum of $13.00. There is also a special $42.25 weekly rate and a $90.00 monthly pass for patients admitted to hospital. A $45.00 frequent user pass, valid for 15 visits, is available for patients with scheduled clinic appointments (one per family only). You may purchase passes at CHEO’s Security dept., located near the Emergency Department on the 2nd floor. You can pay for daily parking at pay stations in the main entrance of the hospital (between the sliding doors), the Garry Cardiff wing hallway (2nd floor) and the Emergency Department entrance (near the ambulance bay) by cash or credit card. Please bring your ticket stub into the hospital if you wish to use the pay stations. They allow a 15 minute grace period to exit the parking lot. You can also pay at the parking lot exit, however, that machine only accepts credit cards. These rates may be subject to change during the year.

Appointments What you should bring for a clinic appointment, or admission: • Your child’s health card (OHIP or RAMQ) • Private Insurance Information (if you have any) • Current, labeled medications your child is taking

www.cheo.on.ca

7


General Information

• Your child’s immunization record • Information about allergies to food/drugs • A list of questions you want to ask

Clinic Visits: If you are coming to CHEO for an outpatient clinic appointment, please report directly to the individual clinic (see map of CHEO on page 3). Once you have checked in at the reception desk of the clinic, clinic staff will care for you and your child.

Day Surgery: Go directly to the Day Surgery department on the third floor and check in with the reception clerk.

Emergencies: Go directly to the Emergency entrance. You will be assessed by a triage nurse when you arrive.

Planned Admissions: The Admitting office will contact you by phone or by mail once they receive your doctor’s request for admission. At that time, you will receive important information and any special instructions for the admission. The Admitting department will also contact you the day before admission to confirm the time of admission and give you directions as to where to report once you arrive. Depending on the length of stay in hospital, you may also want to bring spending money for meals and parking, clothes, pyjamas and slippers, any special toys, portable DVD player, laptop computer and/or hand held video game and toiletry items. Ensure all items are labeled with your child’s name.

Telephone Calls Calling Inpatient Units: As a parent and valued member of your child’s care team, you may call the hospital any time for updates. The Unit where your child is staying can be reached through the hospital switchboard at 613-737-7600, or directly through the Unit’s phone number (see inside cover). Shift change is a busy time and outside calls will not be taken between 7:30-8:30 a.m. and 7:30-8:30 p.m. Information is always readily available through your child’s nurse, who can also help you reach any other member of the health care team caring for your child. Out of respect and privacy for our patients and their families, updates and information will only be supplied to the parent or legal guardian of a child. We would therefore appreciate you asking other family members or friends to check with you, and not the unit, for information.

Pay phones are available throughout the hospital, including the main and emergency entrances, and on most floors. There are no phones in patient rooms. Parent phones are located near the nurses’ station and in the Family Forum Lounge which can be used free of charge to make local phone calls. Cell phones and wireless devices are permitted as long as they are one metre away from any medical devices. A TTY pay phone is located in the main entrance. The hospital also has two portable TTYs for patients and families. One is located in the Emergency Department and the other can be obtained though the Audiology clinic.

Visiting Hours and Guidelines

General Information

Making Telephone Calls:

These guidelines are intended to respect our commitment to familycentered care while balancing the need to protect patients, staff and volunteers from the spread of infections.

Inpatient Units: The patient’s immediate family are considered part of the health care team and not visitors. The patient and his/her family (or legal guardians) will identify members of the immediate family and communicate this to their nurse. Those persons can remain with the patient 24 hours a day (maximum of two people at a time and one person overnight). Visiting hours for others coming to the inpatient units are from 3:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., every day (including weekends and statutory holidays.) For compassionate reasons, the unit’s Care Facilitator may grant exceptions to these guidelines. Please discuss your needs with the nursing staff.

Outpatient Clinics / Daycare surgery: A maximum of two (2) adults may accompany a child or youth coming to a clinic or outpatient appointment (eg.: clinics, Diagnostic Imaging, Medical Day Unit and Day Care surgery). A hospital is no place for healthy brothers and sisters. Siblings must stay home.

Emergency Department Visits: A maximum of two (2) adults may accompany a child or youth seeking emergency care. The emergency department is no place for healthy brothers and sisters. Siblings must stay home. This will help avoid congestion in our waiting rooms and assist in limiting the spread of infection.

General Information

Staying Overnight With Your Child If you are staying overnight with your child please note that: • Bed linens will be provided. • We ask that bed chairs be set up along the wall in the patient’s room and be folded and put away by 9 a.m. every morning. • Night-lights are left on all night so that the nursing staff can assess your child throughout the night and take their vital signs. This is an important part of caring for your child. • The room should stay set up as it is. It was purposely set up like this for your child’s comfort and to make it as easy as possible for our staff to care for your child. • Limit personal possessions in your child’s room. Space is limited. • A shower is located in the Family Forum Lounge on 5-West, additional showers are located on the first floor locker rooms area across from the main cafeteria.

Discharge Information CHEO aims to let families know the discharge date as far in advance as possible. Most patients will have their discharge order signed in the morning. Only legal guardians may take a child home. Please pick up your child as early as possible so that the bed can be available for the next patient. Your child’s nurse will go over all necessary instructions with you before discharge, including information about medications, follow-up appointments, and care to be given at home. Please make sure that you can safely transport your child home by having the appropriate car seat or other special equipment that may be needed.

Payment of Accounts If you do not have health insurance through a provincial health card or private insurance, the hospital’s Finance department must be contacted prior to your visit or as soon as you arrive to make suitable arrangements. The Finance department (Patient Accounts) is open from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Mondays and from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Tuesday to Friday, and is located on the first floor. MasterCard and Visa are accepted.

CHEO’s Patient/Family Representative is there to represent and help patients and families through advocacy and problem solving both during and after a visit or stay. She works to strengthen, personalize and enhance the relationship between patients/families and the hospital. She is available to help you understand your rights and responsibilities, as well as hospital policies and procedures. She also makes sure that patient and family feedback (positive or negative) is heard by the hospital and used to ensure CHEO’s patient and family-centered care is the best possible. For more information, call 613-737-7600, ext. 2203.

Family Forum Providing patient and family-centred care means involving families not only in their child’s care but also in the way we plan the hospital. One way patients and families voices are heard is through Family Forum, which:

General Information

Youth Forum Youth Forum is a group of adolescents who are past or present patients or siblings of patients.

Through its youth-friendly award program, the group recognizes staff members, physicians and volunteers who excel in this area. Contact a nurse or child life specialist to find out how to nominate a deserving individual. If you are interested in more information or joining the Forum contact the Project Coordinator for Patient Services at ext. 2388.

hospital services Activities At CHEO, we recognize that kids still need to play and have fun even when they’re in hospital. Whether they are here for a clinic appointment or hospitalized, there are organized activities to keep things interesting.

Activity/Play Rooms: There are activity rooms for patients on the fourth and fifth floors where Child Life Specialists and volunteers are available to provide play opportunities and learning materials. The hours of the activity rooms are posted on each activity room door.

Child Life Specialists: The Child Life Specialists help children learn, play and take part in creative projects while in hospital. Child Life Specialists are also trained in “medical play”, which assists children in understanding their illness and helps them cope with anxious feelings they may have. Here is a sampling of the kinds of activities available:

Diversion and Leisure Activities: • Toys, magazines, books, games, crafts, movies, entertainment systems (TV/DVD/Nintendo) and opportunities to meet other children in the hospital.

Therapeutic Activities: • Relaxation techniques, imagery, stress management and reduction, coping skills, self expression through art.

Child Life Interactive Computers for Kids (CLICK) Program: This program allows patients to stay connected with family, friends and schoolmates through computers and wireless internet access from their bedside during lengthy hospital stays. A Child Life Specialist can get you started.

Molly Penny - CHEO’s Therapeutic Clown: With big red shoes, a big smile and an even bigger heart, Molly Penny makes her way throughout the hospital three days a week. She can often be found assisting our health care team by helping children and youth to deal with fears and anxieties they may be feeling about being hospitalized, their illness or a particularly difficult medical procedure.

Farm Boy Fun Park: A large playground is available outside the Max Keeping Wing, across from the Ottawa Children’s Treatment Centre and Roger’s House. The park is open daily until dusk and includes youth-friendly activities including a basketball

Pet Therapy Program on 4-West and 6-North: Patients admitted to 4-West or 6-North can benefit from this program, which is run in partnership with the Ottawa Therapy Dog Program. Only dogs certified by this program, along with their handlers, can visit the unit during specified visitation times. While the “four-legged friends” can’t roam the hospital hallways freely, patients can spend dedicated time with the dog in a designated room. Patients who want to participate in the program have to receive their medical team’s approval. The pet handler and CHEO’s program facilitator is always present during the visit, and family members are also encouraged to participate in the activity.

Social Work Services The illness and the hospitalization of a child or youth has an impact not only on the patient, but on the family who cares for that child or youth. Supporting patients and families through this difficult time is a priority for CHEO social workers. Any member of the health care team can help patients and families get in touch with a social worker. Social workers can provide crisis assessments and counseling around mental health issues, emergency support services after regular working hours and counseling to patients, families and groups. They facilitate communication between the family and the health care team and also play a vital role in advocating on behalf of children, youth and families for necessary community services.

Such services include: temporary relief (planned or emergency), management of pain and distressing symptoms that are difficult to manage at home, transitional services for those who require a level of support not available at home, end-of-life care when the death of a child is imminent and grief and bereavement support.

Library Books for Patients in Isolation: The Child & Youth Library also provides books for patients in isolation. The borrowing system is different in that patients can select a book from a special collection, however, in accordance with infection control policy, those books will not be returned to the collection. Patients will be invited to take the book home on discharge. Please contact the library at extension 2206 if reading material is needed for patients in isolation.

Patient Safety

patient safety Keeping our patients safe is a top priority at CHEO. As partners in care, patients and families play an important role in ensuring our patients receive the best care. • Be involved in your child’s health care. Speak up if you have questions or concerns about their care. • Tell a member of the health care team about your child’s past illnesses as well as his or her current health condition. • Bring all of your child’s medicines with you when you come to the hospital or when you come to a medical appointment. • Tell a member of the health care team if your child has ever had an allergic reaction to any medicine or food. • Make sure you know what to do when your child goes home from the hospital or from the medical appointment. More information and translations into different languages of this information is available at the OHA website at: http://www.oha.com/ patientsafetytips.

Allergies Please remember: No peanuts No perfume No latex balloons

CHEO aims to provide a peanut-safe and scent-free environment. Please do not bring any products that contain peanuts or wear any perfume when visiting someone at the hospital. Latex balloons are not permitted to protect patients and staff who have latex allergies.

Infection Prevention and Control Self-screening: Please DO NOT visit if you are sick with a cold, flu, if you have a fever, cough, runny nose, sore throat, diarrhea, a new rash or any other infectious disease. This applies for child visitors as well. Children are NOT to visit if they have been in contact with a communicable disease, such as measles or chicken pox. This is of UTMOST importance in protecting our patients who are already sick.

18

Making a difference in the lives of children, youth and families.


Keeping infection to a minimum is an important part of everyone’s job. Washing your hands regularly with soap and warm water for 15 seconds and using the hand sanitizer found throughout the hospital is the best way to limit the spread of germs, even if you are feeling well. It is important to wash your hands before entering and after leaving a patient’s room. Some rooms have special isolation instructions to follow as well. Staff and you may need to wear masks, gloves and special gowns to keep your child and other patients safe. You can help reduce the spread of infections by only handling your own child, and not sharing your child’s toys or belongings with other children.

Patient Safety

Hand washing – our best defence:

Smoking Restrictions For the comfort and safety of our patients, families and staff, smoking is restricted to one smoking area located adjacent to the patio, outside of the main cafeteria on the first floor of the hospital. It is accessible by using the cafeteria exit or by walking outdoors, past the Emergency and Research buildings. Smoking is not permitted anywhere else. We seek everyone’s cooperation in ensuring that smoking is restricted to the designated area, allowing us to provide a smoke-free environment for the remainder of the CHEO site.

Security Services CHEO’s Security is on-duty 24 hours a day throughout the hospital on behalf of our patients, families and staff. Parents will be given a special ID badge when their child is admitted as an inpatient. We ask that you wear this badge at all times while in the hospital, and return it to the unit nursing staff at time of discharge. We remind families to leave all valuables at home. If this is not possible, Security can provide temporary lock-up for valuables. Please call them with any security concerns at extension 2227 or through the switchboard “0”.
