www.sjghel.ca


As a patient you and your family must be involved in your care This means taking part and being involved in every decision about your care. This also means asking members of your health care team questions, so that you can make informed choices. You and your family should understand as much as you can about any medical problem you have (your diagnosis), treatment or procedure that you will undergo or medicine you should take. Before you see a member of our health care team, plan the questions you want to ask and write them down. We recognize that when you ask questions, you may not understand the answers you get the first time. Please ask again.

Tell our staff about your past illnesses as well as your current condition You know the most about your health. Please tell our staff everything you can, even if you think they already know and even if you think it is not important. Please tell us if: • you are taking any medications • you have had a recent visit to the hospital or to see your family doctor • you have seen another doctor or gone somewhere else for health care • you have an ongoing illness like diabetes, high blood pressure or heart disease • there is an illness that runs in your family, such as high blood pressure, asthma, or cancer • you have an addiction such as smoking, drugs, or alcohol Please remember that this information is held in the strictest confidence.

Some medications combine with each other in your body and produce bad reactions. To protect you, our staff must know about everything you take. This allows us to have the best www.sjghel.ca

13


possible information when decisions are made about your care. It also enables us to identify medications that may be causing your current illness. Know why you are taking the medications prescribed to you. If you are admitted to the hospital, send your medications home with a family member.

Tell our staff if you are allergic to any medications or foods If you get sick, members of our health care team may have to act quickly. Before they give you any medication, they need to know if you could have a bad reaction to it. That’s why you should tell them in advance about any allergy or reaction you have ever had to any medication or food. A “reaction” may include rashes, headaches, trouble breathing, and feeling unwell.

Make sure you know what to do when you get home from the hospital When you are getting ready to go home from the hospital or after a medical treatment ask as many questions as you can to make sure you understand: • whether you will have to pick up a prescription before you go home • the type of care you will need at home. Do you require homecare? • what symptoms to watch for and who to call if you feel unwell • what medications you must take, how to take it, and any side effects • what foods you may eat and not eat • when you can go back to normal activities, such as work, school, exercise, and driving • what follow-up appointments you will need and who will make them

Hand Hygiene Hand washing, when done correctly, is the single most effective way to prevent the spread of communicable diseases. Ensure that your healthcare provider washes their hands before they make contact with you. For the protection of yourself and others, please utilize the alcohol based hand sanitizer located throughout the building.
