the McGill University Health Centre The McGill University Health Centre (MUHC) is one of the world’s foremost academic health centres. Building on the tradition of medical leadership of its founding hospitals, the MUHC provides exceptional multidisciplinary patient-centric care. Affiliated with the Faculty of Medicine of McGill University, the MUHC continues to shape the course of academic medicine by attracting clinical and research expertise from around the world, assessing the latest in medical technology and training the next generation of medical professionals. In addition to the Montreal General, the Montreal Neurological and Lachine hospitals, the MUHC comprises the Glen site, where the Montreal Children’s Hospital, the Royal Victoria Hospital, the Montreal Chest Institute, the Cedars Cancer Centre and the Research Institute are housed.

The human side of health care Fostering a patient-centred philosophy means more than just facility upgrades and new equipment; it means improving all facets of the healing process to humanize health care. By engaging them in all stages of treatment, patients are empowered to get involved in their own care. We strive to build genuine patient-clinician relationships based on twoway communication, with both parties working together to achieve life-saving results.

Parking The patients’ and visitors’ underground parking lot is situated directly underneath the main plaza. Accessible by Décarie Blvd, it is directly connected to the hospital via elevators and stairs, so there is no need for visitors to walk outside to access the facilities. Parking at the Glen site has been made easy thanks to a navigational system that directs drivers by providing up-to-the-minute information on the number of available parking spaces on each parking level (P1 to P4). Reserved areas and signage must be respected at all times. People may be dropped off at the hospital main entrances or directly at the Emergency Department (accessible via a ramp facing the Shriners). Vehicles must then be parked in the parking lot or driven off the premises. All entrances, exits and roads must be free of vehicles for safety and security reasons. The City of Montreal is permitted to issue parking tickets for vehicles illegally parked at the Glen site. Any vehicle in violation of a parking infraction may be towed at the owner’s expense.

Express parking There are two Express Parking lots that are meant for quick visits to the hospital. One is located directly across from the main entrance to the hospital. The second is located past the Cedars Cancer Centre at the entrance to the Research Institute. Payment can be made by credit card at the exit of the lot or by credit card or cash at any one of the blue payment kiosks.

Emergency Department parking Turn into the Glen site from Decarie Blvd. and follow the roadway to the front entrances of the hospital. Veer left at the red “URGENCE/EMERGENCY” sign and follow the circular driveway down to the underground parking lot. There are dedicated drop-off spaces for ED drop-offs. Once the drop off is done, follow the signs to park in the general underground lot.

Electric car parking As part of our greener approach to health care, electric car parking spaces with recharging capabilities are now available at the Glen site. These designated parking spaces are situated in the underground parking at the Glen in the following sectors: • P1 (facing the Children’s Emergency entrance) = 7 spaces • P2 (Sector 100) = 9 spaces • P2 (Sectors 300 and 400) = 24 spaces • P3A (near the Shriner’s Hospital entrance via underground parking) = 9 spaces

Reduced rate parking pass To better serve our patients and their families and visitors, the MUHC is pleased to offer discounted rates and packages to lessen the financial impact of frequent visits. Whether it is for a patient who is required to return to the hospital for numerous clinic appointments or for a family member visiting a hospitalized patient, we offer reduced parking rates to fit individual needs. For more information, please visit the Parking Customer Service Office in person or call local 32330 or 23427. muhc.ca •

All parking passes are available to be purchased from the Parking Customer Service Desk, (see page 8).

Three ways to pay for parking 1) Payment machine Accept Visa, MasterCard and cash (bills only, and $1 or $2 coins) and are located on: • Level P1 (corresponding with level S1 in the hospital) outside the Children’s and Adult Emergency entrances • Level P2 in front of the elevators that lead to the hospital in block A and C • Level P3 and P4 in front of the elevators that lead to the hospital in block C

2) Parking Customer Service Desks Accept Visa, MasterCard, debit and cash. Reduced rate passes can also be purchased here.

3) Mini-Payment machine at exit gates Accept ONLY credit card (Visa or MasterCard) to process payment for daily parking pass. Located at the exit gate before you leave the parking lot.

For assistance If you encounter a problem, have a payment question, or experience difficulty attempting to enter or exit the parking area, please use the question mark (?) on the intercoms located on the blue parking machines. Assistance is available 24/7. The intercoms can also be used as a resource when the Customer Service Parking Offices are closed.

Transport by ambulance Ambulance charges are your responsibility unless you meet certain criteria for free ambulance transportation. Such criteria include transportation to a hospital following a traffic accident, or when a doctor has signed a form attesting to the medical need for transport for a person over age 65, or for certain people receiving Income Security benefits. Of note, private insurance will sometimes reimburse ambulance fees.

Finding your way Finding your way around the Glen is made simple by colour-coding our different areas:

Navigational maps are found at all main entrances, as well as touch screen information posts and information desks. You can also download a free app on muhc.ca.

2. Access to care and services How to get an appointment In most cases, you’ll need a referral from a general practitioner in order to get an appointment with a specialist at the MUHC. To make an appointment for an adult patient, please call the MUHC Appointment and Referral Centre at 514 934-8488 Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. For a first time appointment in a service, you will be told how to send your consultation request and what information to include. Please note that you can ask for a follow-up appointment at the clinic reception, following your visit.

Your hospital card If you are a new MUHC patient, or a patient from the Montreal General or Lachine Hospital visiting the Glen for the first time, you must obtain a new MUHC hospital card prior to your first appointment. Please go to the Admitting Office at C RC.0046 in the Promenade Larry and Cookie Rossy. If you have an appointment at the Women’s Health Mission, go to C 6.1250.

If you have to be admitted to the hospital The Admitting Office will try to let you know in advance of the day and time you will be admitted. In some cases, your admission date could be delayed on short notice. Upon arrival, you should have a hospital card made (if you don’t already have one). You should also bring your Medicare card. If you do not have a valid Medicare card, pre-arranged payment must be made with the Finance Department (local 48048). Although the hospital makes every effort to avoid such situations, you might arrive to be told that you cannot be admitted. In such cases you will be asked to return home or to make arrangements for accommodation in Montreal until a bed is available. Information regarding reasonably priced accommodations is available from the Social Service Department (local 31569).

Hospitalization and outpatient services charges: for who? • For Quebec residents with a valid Medicare card from the Régie de l’assurance maladie du Québec, most hospitalization charges and outpatient services are fully covered. • In accordance with an agreement between all Canadian provinces, patients from other provinces with a valid Medicare card from their home province are also fully covered for most services. • If you are a patient from any other country, or a Canadian resident without a valid Medicare card, you are responsible for all hospitalization expenses and professional fees for services received at the hospital. You must make an advance deposit equal to seven days payment upon admission to cover the hospitalization charges. You will also receive a bill for professional services. To make your advance deposit, please contact a finance representative at the Patients’ Cashier’s Office (room B S1.3885.1, local 34627). A deposit may be made by certified cheque, credit card or debit card. If you pay by credit card you

can also do so by telephone (local 34627). It is sometimes possible to obtain a temporary Medicare card if one has been lost or is expired for less than six months. For all inquiries concerning your account, contact the Accounting Office during normal office hours (local 42732).

Non-insured services The completion of forms for insurance and other purposes is not covered by Medicare and doctors may charge a fee for this service. Certain medical treatments and services are not covered by Medicare. In these cases you will be informed. It is up to you to contact your insurance company regarding possible reimbursement of associated costs. The hospital is not responsible for decisions made by insurance companies about reimbursement of services not covered by Medicare.

Transitional-care charges There is a daily hospitalization charge for patients who no longer require active medical treatment and who are awaiting transfer to a long-term-care facility. These charges have been determined by the Quebec Ministry of Health and Social Services. Your doctor will advise you of this change of status and the Social Service Department (local 31569) and the Accounting Office (local 42732) can provide more details.

Questions about hospital bills If you have any questions concerning your bill, please call the Accounting Office (local 42732).

3. Hospital stay Consent At the time of your admission, you will be asked to sign a general consent form for treatment and tests. For patients under the age of 14 years, the person with parental authority will be asked to sign on the patient’s behalf. For adult patients who have been deemed incapable by a physician, substituted consent may be acquired from the patient’s legal representative. For further information, you may contact the Ombudsman/Complaints Commissioner (local 35655) or ask to speak with a Social Worker from the Social Service Department (local 31569). You may also attempt to seek advice from the Office of the Public Curator (514 8734074). At the same time, you will be asked whether or not you agree to release personal and confidential medical information to your insurance company (if any) and/or to referring doctors, hospitals or clinics.

Your care team Your team consists of a variety of healthcare professionals and staff who work together, in collaboration with you, to care for you and your family. Among the professionals are nurses, nursing assistants, patient attendants (orderlies), doctors, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, dieticians, pharmacists, social workers, blood technicians, ECG technicians, as well as respiratory therapists. Some of the support staff you may encounter include unit coordinators (the clerk at the front desk of the unit), housekeepers and transport attendants.

Nursing staff The MUHC takes pride in its dynamic nursing staff who are at the centre of the care team. Nurses are the ones you will have the most contact with during your hospital stay. They play an important role in providing care, as well as supporting and educating patients and their families. They do this in many ways, including through communicating important information and actively listening to your concerns so that the team can understand how to best care for you and your family. You will have a nurse assigned to you at all times—the nurses on your care unit may work in 8- or 12-hour shifts. Your nurse should be your first contact if you have questions about the care you receive.

Physicians A physician (doctor) is in charge of your treatment plan and supervises the medical team: medical fellows, residents and students. Depending on your unique needs, your doctor may consult with other specialists and consultants. When a doctor transfers your care to another doctor, they communicate detailed information about you before this change. Members of the medical team are available to answer your questions.

Students The MUHC is a teaching hospital. Students from a variety of healthcare professions may be involved in your care. Should you have a concern about their services or the services provided by any other healthcare professional or staff member of the hospital, please talk to the Nurse Manager or the Assistant Nurse Manager on your care unit. muhc.ca •

Care stations Care stations are centrally located and there are decentralized stations near each room, so clinical staff is never far from their patients’ sides.

Accommodations The Glen site has single-patient rooms with a private ensuite shower and toilet. Single rooms allow you to talk to your doctor and nurses in private and they also help to minimize the risk of hospital-acquired infections. Each room comes with a built-in closet, with lock, to store personal belongings, and a large television screen, which will be used for entertainment as well as by healthcare workers to share test results, x-ray images, and additional information. Your room also has a couch, which a family member can use to spend the night. Finally, each room has a large window with plenty of natural light.

What to bring Although the MUHC provides hospital gowns, you may feel more comfortable in your personal effects. You can bring your own pyjamas/clothing, housecoat, and slippers/ shoes. You should bring a toothbrush, toothpaste, tissues, shaving items, soap, body lotion, sanitary supplies and other personal care articles. Since storage is limited, you are asked to bring only a small suitcase. Please bring all medications that you are taking. This will ensure that the admitting physician or nurse can verify the exact medication and dose that you have been prescribed. You should also bring your valid Medicare card and MUHC card. If you do not have an MUHC hospital card, the Admitting Office staff will make one for you. If you do not have a valid Medicare card, pre-arranged payment must be made with the Finance Department (local 48048).

Leaving your room If you wish to temporarily leave your room, please inform your nurse or somebody at the care station. It is important for the nursing staff to know where you are at all times.

Visiting guidelines–for adult units The goals of MUHC visiting guidelines are to ensure that our patients receive the best balance of rest, care and support. The patient and family are considered partners in care. The patient will identify their family or significant support. It is important for the healthcare staff to be able to provide care while maintaining a supportive and comfortable environment for patient and family. The number of family members and visitors in the room is dependent upon the patient’s condition. Guidelines for the presence of family and visitors will be flexible and will respond to the preferences and changing needs of the patient. In some circumstances, an individualized visiting plan may be developed to respond to the needs of a specific patient and family or a safety-related concern. It will be developed collaboratively with patient, family and clinical staff. At the Glen site, families can stay overnight in the single patient rooms on sofas. If doing so, please speak with the patient’s nurse. In areas without these in-room facilities (in critical care units), speak to the patient’s nurse about how you stay overnight. Visitors are guests of the patient. Regular visiting hours (which do not apply to family) are from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. This may change based on patient/nursing needs. Children under the age of 12 must be accompanied and supervised by an adult. For the patient’s privacy, visitors and family may be asked to leave the patient room for a short period of time.

By following these simple rules you will help promote patient healing and recovery: • Wash hands before and after visiting patients • Respect the posted Infection Control Signs on patient room doors • Respect restricted visiting rights. This normally occurs during an outbreak of a contagious illness. • Do not touch patients’ wound coverings, tubing or equipment at bedsides • Do not visit if sick with fever, cough, diarrhea or rash • Ensure your belongings are locked or with you at all times. The hospital is a public place and staff cannot be held accountable if items are stolen. • Mutual respect between family, visitors and healthcare staff is essential. Courteous and respectful behaviour is a requirement.

Overnight accommodation for families A family member can stay overnight and sleep on the couch in your room. If needed, the Social Service Department (local 31569) can provide you with information regarding reasonably priced hotels in the area.

Family room Each in-patient floor has a family room for visitors of patients to use at their leisure. The rooms come equipped with a kitchenette and lounge chairs.

The patient complaint system is governed by Quebec legislation, and is outlined in a brochure available on all sites of the MUHC.

Patient’s rights and responsibilities All patients of the MUHC have specific rights, within the limits of Quebec legislation, concerning their expectations to quality of care and treatment.
