VISITING HOURS & GUIDELINES Visiting hours are from 11 am to 8 pm daily.

Exceptions are made in Palliative Care, Critical Care, Paediatrics, Neonatal, and the Emergency Department, where 24 hour visitation is permitted.

Restrictions and limits:

▪ Each patient is allowed no more than 2 visitors at one time including children. ▪ Children must be supervised by a visiting adult. ▪ Due to the higher risk environment, the hospital does not encourage visits from children under 14 years of age. ▪ Women in labour are allowed 2 visitors at a time. The visitors may rotate with visitors in the waiting room. Children under 14 are not allowed in the labour room.

▪ Recognizing the support that siblings can play, two children can accompany one adult caregiver in the postpartum department after a mom has delivered her baby or babies. ▪ Anyone experiencing fever, cough, runny nose, sore throat, skin rash, vomiting or diarrhea should avoid visiting with patients in the hospital. In the event of infection control outbreaks, further restrictions may apply.

Visitor Guidelines:

Family members play an important role in the healing process. These guidelines and information are intended to make your visit more comfortable and safe for you and our patients. ▪ Keep visits short – preferably 15 minutes at a time or less so patients can rest.

▪ Keep noise levels to a minimum and be mindful of other patients in the same room and unit who need rest, and staff who are caring for all patients. ▪ Floral arrangements or fruit baskets may not be appropriate for certain patients. Have the designated visitor check with the nurse before bringing these items to the hospital. ▪ Mylar balloons only - latex balloons cause severe allergies in some people and are not allowed in the hospital. ▪ If you visit when the physician or other health care professionals are with the patient, at certain times you may be asked to leave the room while they are providing patient care.

Discharge Planning Information Discharge planning begins the first day of hospitalization. You will be asked to consider plans for your care in preparation for when your physician says you no longer require the care provided by the hospital. Your plans may involve arranging services at home, a temporary convalescent placement, moving to a rest/retirement home or a long-term care facility. A Social Worker will support and assist you in making these plans. Referrals to Home and Community Care are made for patients who will require assistance when returning home or going to a Retirement Home. These services may include personal support workers, Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy and Social Work. Other services include applying for admission to Long Term Care and to Complex Continuing Care while in the community.

Responsibilities of Patient and Family To make the discharge process as easy as possible, it would be helpful if you and/or your family would: • • • • • • • •

Bring in clothing that you can wear home; Pack, remove and carry all of your personal items;  Fill prescriptions for medicine before or soon after your discharge;  Plan for any equipment delivery or changes to be finished at home, as told to you by the health care team;  Be available to receive important information and education for care before the discharge;  Tell the patient care unit of any problems, which may delay your discharge;  Arrange transportation for the time of discharge. If there is a delay, you may be asked to wait in a lounge or waiting area as we must prepare the room for a new patient. If the patient is a baby or small child, have a certified car seat available. If you are not sure if your seat is certified, ask your nurse.

Discharge Instructions You may be given prescriptions for medicine and follow-up appointments. If you have not received any follow-up instructions or do not understand them, please ask your nurse before you leave the unit.

Long-Term Care It is the policy of Windsor Regional Hospital to transfer patients that are waiting for a bed in a long-term care facility to the first available bed, where their care needs can be safely met until a bed becomes available in their chosen facility. Windsor Regional Hospital’s staff responsible for discharge and the Erie St. Clair Local Health Integration Network caseworkers will work closely with patients and families to help them fill out forms, offer advice, answer questions and provide support.

FALL PREVENTION PROGRAM Your health and safety is our main concern! All patients are assessed at admission for their risk of falling. Prevention strategies are used to promote patient safety and reduce the risk of injury. During your stay, expect us to check on you every 2 hours to see if you are comfortable and safe. These visits are called Comfort Rounds. We will ask about your pain level, personal needs and make sure you have your personal items including your call bell within reach. We’ll also make sure your room is clean and clutter free, and update your bedside whiteboard to let you know when we’ll be back. How can you help? ▪ Use your call bell when you need help getting out of bed. Call for bathroom assistance when you feel the first need. Don’t wait until it is urgent. ▪ Use your cane, walker, or wheelchair if needed. Notify a nurse if you require any of these items. ▪ Wear your required glasses or hearing aids during your entire stay. ▪ If you can move without help, move slowly and rest often. Sit down immediately if you feel dizzy. ▪ Familiarize yourself with your room and where to find special equipment including the call bell, grab bars, light switches, etc. ▪ Tell a nurse about spills or wet areas on the floor. ▪ Wear flat, well-fitting shoes with rubber soles while walking. What can family members and visitors do? ▪ Stay with the patient as much as possible especially if they are at a high risk for falling, confused, or wandering. ▪ Reinforce to the patient the importance of asking the nurse for help when getting up. ▪ Make sure the patient can reach the call bell and bed stand. ▪ Notify the nurse before leaving a confused or disoriented patient. ▪ Notify a nurse of any potential medication side effects including weakness or dizziness. ▪ Tell a nurse if you see a patient walking alone if they appear to be unsafe. ▪ Get help before trying to move anyone out of the bed.

Goals of Care Goals of Care clarifies a patient’s values, wishes, and goals regarding their treatment. The process aims to clarify a person’s illness understanding and more specifically, their wishes. Goals of Care is about a Patient-centric approach that integrates patient’s values, wishes and goals in the context of medically appropriate treatment. Advance Care Planning Conversations: It provides resources for Patients and their families to engage in advance care planning as early as possible in a patient’s course of care and/or treatment. Standardizes the Process for Documentation of Advance Care Planning: It provides a standardized set of short-hand instructions where the Patient’s general care intentions, specific clinically indicated health interventions, transfer decisions, and locations of care are described. Goals of Care will follow the Patient across the Continuum of Care: Goals of Care Designation Order will form part of the Patient’s health record and will follow the Patient regardless of where the Patient lives or receives medical care. Goals of Care Designation Tracking Record: Pertinent details of advance care planning and Goals of Care discussions are documented in the Patient’s health record and the Goals of Care Tracking Record and will be reviewed on a continuing basis. Each Patient takes an active role in their health care and/or treatment. The Patient’s wishes and goals are incorporated into the way decisions are made at each step of the Patient’s clinical treatment. Goals of Care Designations involve many options and should be discussed and considered carefully. Whether care involves resuscitative care, medical care or comfort care, there are many considerations. Although at times, these decisions may be difficult to think about, it is important that Goals of Care are clear and documented. This most often puts minds at ease and positions the Patient and their wishes at their centre of care. It can also reduce stress on family and loved ones when the Patient’s wishes are clearly communicated and in place.

Taking medications without the knowledge of your physician/nurse could put you at risk of a serious or adverse drug interaction. • Before surgery, ask your physician about medications, especially prescription blood thinners, that you should take or any that you should stop taking before surgery. • Before you leaving the hospital, review a list of your medications with a member of your care team.  Make sure you understand why you are taking the drugs and how they should be taken.  • If you have any questions regarding your medications, ask to speak to a pharmacist.

Newspapers and Magazines Vending machines in the hospital cafeteria carry most national newspapers. The Windsor Star as well as magazines are available in the Gift Shop.
