Our nurses specialize in various fields, including flexible sigmoidoscopy, first surgical assistance and enterostomal therapy.
Registered Nurse (flexible sigmoidoscopy)
We have created a nursing team that performs flexible sigmoidoscopies autonomously. We are the only hospital in the Champlain LHIN region that includes this field. These members of our nursing staff are proud to contribute to colorectal cancer screening and prevention efforts.
First Surgical Assistant Nurse
Some members of our registered nursing staff hold a certificate as registered first surgical assistant nurses. They play a major role in implementing best practices in perioperative care.
Registered Enterostomal Therapy Nurse
A wound care team now exists under the leadership of an enterostomal therapist. Her mandate is to institute best practices in pressure sore prevention and treatment. We have also begun implementing best practices in stoma care and maintenance.
"I chose Montfort because it decided to incorporate the nurse practitioner role in its patient care model. The organization is committed to evolving with nurses. Its progressive vision not only fosters significant autonomy among its nurse practitioner staff, but also among nurses who want to provide optimal quality care to patients, their family members and our community. In my opinion, Montfort’s commitment to using its nursing staff enables us to meet the constantly changing needs of the public in the health care field.”
