Progress in Patient Safety at Cornwall Hospital
More than one-third of seniors experience falls, which can have a devastating physical and psychological impact, resulting in disability, chronic pain, loss of independence, reduced quality of life, and even death. Falls are the leading cause of injury for seniors and also contribute to a significant burden on the healthcare system. Direct healthcare costs for falls in Canada are estimated at $2 billion annually.


New Sound for Cornwall Hospital – First patient rings Chemo Bell
 A sound that has never been heard before at Cornwall Hospital was heard for the first time last Friday, July 15, when Lillian Coleman was the first to ring the bell in newly renovated Chemotherapy Unit. The bell is rung at the end of a patient’s chemotherapy treatment session and is usually a sign of hope for the other patients who are witnesses.


A shift in focus benefits children at Day Treatment Program
 The Cornwall Hospital Children’s Day Treatment Program is a comprehensive service for children who experience mental health issues and/or behavioural challenges. The children who attend this program will benefit from the generous donation made by an Ottawa-based company. “We are grateful and honoured to receive this donation. The children in our program can use these tablets for educational and therapeutic purposes,” says Natasha Scott, Supervisor for the Child and Youth Mental Health Services.
