Health Sciences North continues to implement measures to maintain social distancing and reduce the risk of spreading germs to patients and staff.

As of March 31, only essential personal and medical belongings can be dropped off for patients at the Ramsey Lake Health Centre until further notice. 

The following belongings may be dropped off at the main entrance of the Ramsey Lake Health Centre: 

  • Hearing aids 
  • Dentures
  • Medical devices (i.e. braces)
  • Clothing for patients being discharged
  • Clothing for patients on the rehab unit
  • Home medication 

Other items that are not essential will not be accepted. This includes food and baked goods. 

There is a process in place to drop off these belongings: 
At reception, the visitor will hand sanitize and transfer items to clear plastic bags, available at the greeter's desk.  
The visitor will be responsible for placing items in the bag, labelling the bag with the patient's name and location, and signing a waiver.
HSN staff will then make necessary arrangements to have the belongings brought to the patient.
