CHU Sainte-Justine (Pediatric Palliative Care and Perinatal Bereavement Rooms)
The CHU Sainte-Justine is the first hospital centre mother-child in Canada to offer a palliative care service for their patients.
The first mandate that was given to our team was to design three rooms for pediatric palliative care and one room that could be adapted to the requirements and the restraints of the intensive care unit.
These four rooms are therefore designed to give the families a more peaceful and serene environment providing all the intimacy required to allow parents to surround their child with warmth and comfort to accompany them to the term of their short life.
In collaboration with the palliative care team of the CHU Sainte-Justine, the room has been meticulously taught over in order to bring about positive outcome on the physical and mental health of the young patient.
In a second mandate, the concept was revised for two rooms situated in the birthing unit for cases of perinatal bereavement where the birth of a child take place and the rituals that follows the death of newborns.
The realisation of all six rooms was made possible thanks to the generous donation of the foundation of the ‘’Gouverneurs de l’Espoir’’.
