WELCOME TO UNIT 40
PRESENTATION OF THE UNIT
Unit 40 is an internal medicine and gastroenterology unit.
It consists of 18 rooms and has a capacity of 30 patients.
Patients present themselves at the nursing office, where they will be received by the head nurse (or, in his or her absence, by the person responsible that day) and get settled in their room.
We work with integrated nursing, meaning that each patient is assigned to one and the same nurse.
Your room consists of a bed and a night stand.
A wardrobe with hangers is available and can be locked.
In a common room, you and your neighbour share a bathroom which consists of a shower, a sink and a toilet.
Towels and face flannels are not provided.
Breakfast: between 08:30am and 09:15am
Lunch: between 12:30pm and 01:15pm
Supper: between 05:30pm and 06:15pm
A bottle of still water is served every morning as well

SERVICES AND RELAXATION
TELEPHONE AND INTERNET
All rooms have telephone and internet connections. You will receive a personal code for the telephone when you register. If required you should also ask for access codes for the internet at the admissions department. Outside admissions opening hours, please feel free to ask for the access code at the reception.
All rooms have radio and flat screen television (with DVD player) with a remote control unit in your room. Please keep the volume within reasonable limits out of respect for your fellow patients.
Every Tuesday and Thursday volunteers from the Red Cross come round with books which you may borrow free of charge.
The post will be delivered every morning to your room. Ladies please ask your correspondents to indicate your maiden name on the envelop. The nursing staff will place your post in the post box at the reception, or if you are capable you may do it yourself. If necessary you may buy postage stamps here as well.
In each ward there is a relaxation area. Bicycles with a screen are also available. It is strictly forbidden to smoke in this area.
HAIRDRESSER - PEDICURE
If you wish, you may make an appointment for your hair and/or pedicure via the head nurse of your ward.
Every afternoon, a volunteer serves tea or coffee to the patients and their family.
Patients present themselves at the nursing office on their floor and give notice of their discharge.
The doctors or nurses will give them a discharge letter for their own doctor, as well as prescriptions.
The social service and nursing team are available to provide any assistance you may need (luggage, means of transport, notifying the family, etc.)
