-1A (internal medicine)
PRESENTATION OF THE UNIT
Unit -1A is an internal medicine and cardiology department equipped with 12 cardiac telemetry monitoring stations. Recently renovated, this unit offers its patients an environment that is both welcoming and professional.
If you have to undergo an additional cardiac examination/procedure, such as a coronary angiogram or a cardioversion, you will be received and monitored in our department.
You will be treated in our department at the St. Michel site, then transported via our shuttle to the St. Elisabeth site where the coronary angiogram will be performed. Then you will return to our department the same day via the shuttle, where the nursing team and medical staff will await you for follow-up.
We have adopted a holistic approach to patient care, respecting the values and beliefs of each patient. Each nurse cares for her patients holistically and within the dynamics of "integrated nursing".
All our rooms are equipped with a bathroom with a shower, a TV, one closet with a built-in safe per patient, one armchair per patient, a dining table and 2 chairs.
Breakfast: between 8 am and 8.30 am
Lunch: between 12 pm and 12.30 pm
