Patient General Information

Balloon Policy

In an effort to minimize unnecessary exposure to latex and to safeguard the health and safety of staff, patients and visitors, there will be no latex balloons permitted within the Hospital.

Scent Policy

The Hospital has a "no scents makes sense" policy for the protection of people with sensitivities or allergies to perfumes or scented products. Please refrain from wearing or bringing any scented products, including flowers such as lilacs, lilies & poinsettias into the Hospital.

Smoking Policy

ESHC has a no smoking policy and is a non-smoking facility. 

Cell Phone Policy

The use of cellular phones within the Hospital is strictly prohibited because of adverse effects of electronic interference with certain medical devices.

Electrical Appliances

You are welcome to provide your own electrical appliances such as razors and hair dryers, which can be safely used in the electrical outlets available in the patient bathrooms. All electrical equipment must be approved and checked by the hospital maintenance staff before use. Battery operated appliances are encouraged. External televisions, radios, iPods, MP3’s or DVD players cannot be accommodated without headphones for volume control.

Fire Alarms and Exits

Fire exits are clearly marked throughout the buildings. During a fire alarm, elevators are shut down. All fire doors automatically close until there is an "All Clear" announcement on public speakers. During a fire alarm, stay in your area; do not move to another place unless a member of the Fire Department or hospital staff directs you. Those entering the Hospital at the time of an alarm will be asked to remain at their point of entrance until the "All Clear" is given.


Local newspapers are available from your care station. Vending machines containing a variety of regional and Ottawa newspapers are located outside our Registration / Emergency entrance.


You should send all articles of value home. If you are unable to send your valuables home, the administration office may be contacted at extension 4101 to arrange safekeeping of your items temporarily. Please be advised that the Hospital cannot be responsible for loss or damage of personal belongings.
