Frequently asked questions
Are visitors permitted at the Janeway Emergency Department?
Visiting in the Emergency Department is limited to one person at the bedside or room. Visitors are limited to parents, caregivers and support person(s). The Emergency Department is a locked area so visitors should request access to the department.
Can a family member or a caregiver bring my child to the emergency department?
Parents or legal guardians must complete the Temporary Caregiver for Consent to Treatment (PDF) to form in order for another caregiver (i.e. grandparent) to determine the care of the child in the absence of parents. In the event that your child arrives at the emergency department without this form, a registered nurse will contact the legal guardian and obtain consent for your child’s treatment.
