Providence Transitional Care Centre (PTCC) has two inpatient units (64 beds). Each room includes access to a washroom as well as features designed to support patient comfort and care.
Everyone who works, learns or volunteers at Providence Transitional Care Centre is working together to provide high quality, safe care. Here are examples of what to expect on inpatient units at PTCC:
- At PTCC, patients will receive care from a team of specialized, knowledgeable providers. Care teams include physicians, nursing and allied health staff, medical students and residents, learners, and researchers. Thank you for working with us to provide the next generation of health professionals opportunities to learn and gain experience.
- There are whiteboards in each inpatient room. These boards make it easy for patients and the care team to communicate with one another.
- Everyone who works or volunteers at PTCC wears an identification (ID) badge with their name and title, so you always know who you are speaking with. If you do not see an ID badge, please ask.
- PTCC is equipped with a call bell system in all inpatient rooms and several other inpatient spaces. Patients or family members can use the call bell system to inform staff they need assistance.
Inpatients and families are encouraged to:
- Talk openly about any questions or concerns they may have.
- Ask about and contribute to your care plan.
- Participate in establishing goals.
- Be actively involved in decisions about your care.
- Participate in therapies supporting your recovery.
Approach to Care and Collaborative Practice Model
Providence Care’s Collaborative Practice Model values the important role of patients, clients and families/caregivers as members of the care team. Together, we will support the best possible care experience. In keeping with our Approach to Care, it is essential you are informed and actively engaged in your care. By communicating your preferences, needs and values, you help us to best guide your care and support you to achieve your goals.
Complimentary laundry facilities are located on each of the two inpatient units. A member of your care team can instruct you on when and how to use the facilities.
On-unit activation rooms feature equipment that patients can use to strengthen and increase their ability to manage activities at home.
An Independent Living Suite is available as patients progress towards discharge. Here, patients can stay independently or with the support of caregivers. The suite allows staff to assess the patient’s ability to successfully transition back to the community with the support of the care team close by.
