Resident requests to keep a small refrigerator in their room shall be considered on a individual basis. Please address requests through the Social Worker/Admission Coordinator.
You will be assessed by the nurse and/or dietitian regarding independence in eating (i.e. there are no swallowing/choking concerns and you are able to access and manage food items independently).
The resident and/or family will be responsible for regular cleaning and removal of expired items (minimum once weekly).
The fridge must not exceed 10 amps and will be inspected prior to being place in the resident's room . Alcohol may not be contained in Resident fridges. If the above conditions are not met, the bar fridge will be removed by staff.
