Research has found that regular physical activity appears as effective as psychotherapy for treating mild to moderate depression. Therapists also report that patients who exercise regularly simply feel better and are less likely to overeat or abuse alcohol and drugs. Source: CMHA

Communications

Bedside Whiteboard

Whiteboards communicate care plans to health care providers, patients and families. Additional information, such as our Discharge Letter and Home First information are attached to your whiteboard to assist with our goal that all patients receive the ‘right care' in the ‘right location'.

Social Media & Photos/Videos/Audio Recordings

Social Media sites like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram are a great way to keep connected to your family and friends. For the comfort and privacy of other patients and staff, please don't take or share pictures, videos or audio recordings without their permission.

Telephone

You may arrange to have a telephone at your bedside if you wish. Please note there is a cost involved and you will be required to provide a signature for authorization. Public pay phones are available. You may wish to bring a prepaid long distance telephone card.

Wireless Devices (Cell Phones, Laptops & Tablets)

These can be safely used in the main lobbies, cafeterias, hallways and most patient and visitor waiting rooms. Devices must be turned off in the following highly sensitive patient care areas: Critical Care, Special Care Nursery, Delivery Room, Surgical Suites, and in the Emergency Department.

Wireless Internet

Free Wi-Fi is available for patients and visitors who have their own laptop or Wi-Fi enabled device at any HPHA site. Connect to the “HPHAGuest” wireless network then open your Internet browser and read and accept the “Terms of Use”.
