Fragrance Free Environment
Please refrain from using perfumes or heavily scented creams or lotions. Scented products often adversely affect those with allergies, asthma, migraines and chemical sensitivities. Many find scented products irritating, and a number of people who are exposed to them on a daily basis can experience a variety of allergic reactions.
DRHC strives to ensure the comfort and safety of staff, patients and visitors by requiring a fragrance-free environment.
Smoking is permitted only in the designated area of the central court yard. Smoking is not permitted indoors or anywhere else on the hospital property.
The Dryden Area Family Health Team provides individual counseling, ‘quit packages’ and follow-up to clients who wish to stop smoking. Contact the Family Health Team at 223-7406 for an appointment.
Smoking cessation/tobacco intervention is offered free-of-charge for inpatients, staff and staff family members.
