Montreal hospital experiences


in Daily updates, Travel

Since Friday night, I have been in Montreal to visit my brother Sasha, who had his appendix removed last week. I will be returning to Ottawa on Tuesday, at which point I will seek to correct any hiccups in blog posts, photos, and comment responses that have accumulated while I have been here.

The latest symptom of my laptop’s continuing decline is a stubborn refusal to get IP addresses from DHCP servers. As such, even when I do find a free wireless network to take advantage of, the actual process of connection is often proving slow or impossible.

I will soon be returned to full internet splendor.

[Update: 10 November 2008] Sasha has also written a post about this.

I hope your brother gets well soon. Updating your site is not something you should be worrying about.

Some Montreal doctors treat patients without washing hands: audit

Medical staff say time, inconvenient sinks lead to low compliance rates

“Doctors and nurses at some Montreal hospitals rarely wash their hands in between visiting patients, according to an internal audit.

The McGill University Health Centre network asked staff at its various hospitals about their handwashing habits last year.

One in four doctors in some wards reported washing their hands between patients, the audit found. The best rates were seen in the intensive care units, where 60 per cent of doctors washed up between patients.”
