NEW..... The Student Health Centre implemented Electronic Medical Records this fall in partnership with Velante, the NB Medical Society and the NB Government. For a transition period we will run with existing paper charts complimenting the new system. If it is your first visit to the clinic you will be entered directly into the new system. We appreciate your understanding and patience as we populate the system this fall.
This is a provincially managed, bilingual patient registry for New Brunswickers without a family doctor. call Tele-Care at 811 to register OR online at gnb.ca/PatientConnectNB
If you are already on a no-physician list you do not need to re-register. You have already been added to the new patient registry and have maintained your priority.
Have the FLU, a COLD, or maybe a STOMACH VIRUS?
Did you know some viruses can live on surfaces anywhere from a couple hours to a couple days!
Here are a few tips to help prevent catching or spreading a cold, the flu, pertussis or a stomach virus:
- WASH your hands with WARM & SOAPY water thoroughly and frequently.
- Use hand sanitizer (60 to 90% alcohol based) when you do not have access to wash your hands.
- If you are sick try to isolate yourself from others when possible to avoid spreading germs.
- Cough and sneeze into the bend of your arm, not your hand, to prevent spreading germs to others.
- Discard tissues into a waste basket.
- Clean and disinfect regularly using household cleaners, areas that are touched frequently such as keyboards, doorknobs, sink water tap handles, phones, desktop surfaces, etc.
- Get your flu shot, still available at the Student Health Centre.
- Keep your system strong: eat healthy foods, be physically active, get enough sleep, practice stress management techniques and refrain from smoking.
