Being moved to a different unit

While we will do our best to meet your needs and preferences, you may be moved to a different area of the hospital to ensure you receive the best care possible, or if another patient is in great need of care in that particular area. If you or your family have questions about being moved to a different unit, please ask a member of your health-care team.

When you are moving, the health-care teams will communicate with each other regarding your care needs and treatment goals. You and your family are encouraged to ask as many questions as needed in order to feel comfortable with your care.

We appreciate your understanding when these situations arise.
