Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Triage at the General Hospital:

Guelph General Hospital is the designated sexual assault centre for the region. GGH has been working with a community co-ordinating committee, and the program is being recognized as a model for integrating community and institutional support services.

The Centre has a team of specialized nurses who have training and experience caring for people who have experienced sexual assault and/or domestic violence. Its services are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

To get services offered by the Centre, come directly to the Emergency Department and ask to see our Domestic Violence Nurse. She will be paged immediately. Clients are offered a private waiting area until the nurse arrives – usually within one hour. Any injuries requiring immediate attention are looked after in the Emergency Department first.
