Wheelchairs are available for use at the Main entrance, 102 Street entrance as well as at the Parkade (Level 0) for your use while at the Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital. Wheelchairs must be returned to the appropriate area when leaving the hospital. All washrooms, ramps, elevators, doorways, drinking fountains and designated disabled parking spaces underground on Level 0 are wheelchair accessible.
At our hospital, staff will be wearing their Alberta Health Services photo ID name tag.
Please expect that your health care provider will ask your name, date of birth and check your ID band often. This will happen before you are given medications, blood or intravenous fluids, drawing blood, performing procedures or when transporting you from one area of the hospital to another.
As part of the Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital's commitment to health and wellness, we offer a smoke-free environment. Those who wish to smoke can do so off hospital property. Smoking cessation aids and/or information is available from your doctor or the nursing staff on your unit. If you smoke or use tobacco products, you will be approached by your physician or other healthcare provider about supports to help you quit smoking.
You can stop the spread of germs and bacteria that could make you and/or others unwell. The best way to reduce the spread of germs is to clean your hands. You can either wash with soap and water, or apply an alcohol-based hand rub (Microsan), provided at various locations throughout the hospital. If you have a fever, cough, runny nose, flu-like symptoms or a communicable disease, you should not visit a patient in the hospital.
For the health of everyone, please refrain from bringing fresh flowers to the hospital. Scented products, such as perfumes and lotions, should not be worn.
Anyone can fall, but as you grow older, the risk increases. Falls are the leading cause of serious injuries in older adults.
