- Medications that you are currently taking (preferable to bring in the original bottles or blister packs)
- Dressings supplies if currently on LHIN service
- If you are coming for a foot problem, please bring the shoes that you wear most often
Please refrain from wearing any fragrance as we are a fragrance-free facility.
What to do if you have a concern about your wound?
- The nursing line is available for concerns that you or your home care nurse may have about your care. The nursing line is NOT meant for urgent issues.
- You can call the Clinic to see if an earlier appointment is available. If the clinic cannot accommodate you quickly enough, please see your family physician to evaluate your concerns.
- If you cannot see your family physician or are unwell with fever, chills you should go directly to an emergency department. Women’s College Hospital does not have an emergency department.
With the exception of scheduled virtual appointments, the clinic cannot provide medical care (e.g. provide antibiotics) over the telephone as wounds are complex and require a thorough assessment to determine the appropriate treatment.
