WELCOME TO THE +2G UNIT!
PRESENTATION OF THE UNIT
Unit +2G is an acute geriatric unit that caters to +/- 30 patients with multiple disorders from the age of 75. It manages all surgical and medical diagnoses as well as those in the area of psychogeriatrics.
Upon your arrival, a nurse will receive you to explain how the department is organised. She will ask you questions concerning certain practical aspects: diet, case history, etc. She will also check various vital signs upon your admission. If your family wishes to meet your doctor, specific days are scheduled for this and the times will be given to you on admission.
You may choose to stay in a private room or in a double room. Each room has a bathroom with a shower and a sink. You have a bed, an armchair, a bedside table and a dining area. Each room is equipped with a television and a telephone (in the double rooms, the telephone is shared). A Wi-Fi connection is available. Please note that visiting hours are to be observed for private and double rooms. A maximum number of two people is allowed in the rooms at any one time in order to respect each patient's space. A living room is at your disposal if there are more than two visitors.

SERVICES AND RELAXATION
TELEPHONE AND INTERNET
All rooms have telephone and internet connections. You will receive a personal code for the telephone when you register. If required you should also ask for access codes for the internet at the admissions department. Outside admissions opening hours, please feel free to ask for the access code at the reception.
All rooms have radio and flat screen television with a remote control unit in your room. Please keep the volume within reasonable limits out of respect for your fellow patients.
Every Tuesday and Thursday volunteers from the Red Cross come round with books which you may borrow free of charge.
The post will be delivered every morning to your room. Ladies please ask your correspondents to indicate your maiden name on the envelop. The nursing staff will place your post in the post box at the reception, or if you are capable you may do it yourself. If necessary you may buy postage stamps here as well.
In each ward there is a relaxation area. It is strictly forbidden to smoke in this area.
HAIRDRESSER - PEDICURE
If you wish, you may make an appointment for your hair and/or pedicure via the head nurse of your ward.
Your discharge is managed by the social worker in accordance with medical and familial requirements. The social worker will come to find you to organise your departure: the date, time, means of transport (ambulance, family, etc.) and your family will also be notified. Please do not forget to provide us with a contact number for your family members upon your admission. When you leave, your doctor will provide you with several discharge documents: discharge summary and other documents. During your discharge, you will not receive any medication (your personal medication must remain at home, only the list is necessary).
