Year in Review

The Ottawa Hospital 2013-2014 Annual Report

A pioneering practice that saves lives

Nurses and respiratory therapists, who are often the first to rush to the bedsides of patients suffering from cardiac arrest while they are in hospital, can now use defibrillators. The Ottawa Hospital is the first in Ontario to extend the use of defibrillators to members of the care team in addition to the physician, giving patients a better chance at survival.

Physicians from The Ottawa Hospital Rehabilitation Centre recognized for excellence in research and education

Dr. Keith Wilson, a psychologist, received the 2013 Research Excellence from the Canadian Association of Psychosocial Oncology. Dr. Sue Dojeiji, physiatrist, received the 2013 Meredith Marks Award for Excellence in Education from the Canadian Association of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.

Anesthesiologists recognized nationally

Dr. Viren Naik received the Clinical Teacher Award and Dr. Ashraf Fayad received the Clinical Practitioner Award from Canadian Anesthesiology Society.

A unique post-concussion clinic launched in at The Ottawa Hospital Rehabilitation Centre

Up to one in seven people who suffer a concussion have symptoms that last for a long time. These debilitating symptoms often prevent people from returning to school, work or sports. The Ottawa Hospital Rehabilitation Centre established a clinic to assess and treat patients with post-concussion syndrome. The clinic brings under one roof frontline care and research for the 200 patients a year in the community who are affected by post-concussion syndrome. This integrated approach to care can lead to innovations in treatment that improve patient care.
