Each patient bedside has a telephone. There is a daily phone rental charge of approximately $3.42. This is subject to change. This charge does not include long-distance calls, which must be made collect, billed to a credit card or placed on a calling card. If friends or relatives want to send a useful gift, a calling card may be appreciated.
We do not provide computers with Internet access for patients in their rooms. However, if you bring your own laptop, it can be connected with a dial-up modem to the phone jack in your room. To do this, contact Telus to open or switch your account. Telus will bill your home number for this service.
Please remember to keep valuables securely out of sight when not in use.
