Chronic & Bariatric Care
Inpatient Chronic Care units have patients with complex medical issues whose care needs cannot be met on Personal Care units. Clients require ongoing medical management and multidisciplinary intervention. Clients have chronic and/ or progressive medical conditions found in Personal Care but with the addition of tracheostomies, ostomy care, enteral and parenteral nutrition, complex wound care, blood transfusions and peripheral and central intravenous therapies.
Chronic Care units accept student placements for Registered Nurses, Registered Psychiatric Nurses, Licensed Practical Nurses, Health Care Aides and Health Unit Clerks.
Referrals are through the WRHA Long Term Care Access Centre. For more information, contact the Long Term Care Access Centre at 204-940-8670.
