Balloons and Flowers

Please be aware that for allergy reasons, SAH does not allow any latex balloons. If you would like to send a patient balloons, please make sure that they are Mylar (foil) balloons.

Sault Area Hospital asks visitors not to bring highly fragrant flowers, such as hyacinths, freesias, lilies, lavenders, lilacs, peonies, roses or poinsettias into the hospital because of patient and staff sensitivities or allergies to these highly fragrant flowers.  Due to limited space in patient rooms, small floral arrangements are best. Please note: The Intensive Care Unit (ICU) does not accept any cut flowers and plants.

Where possible, please ask your family members and visitors to send flowers to your home instead of the hospital. When family and friends visit you with flowers, ask them to care for your flowers at their homes until you are discharged.
