Bluewater Health adds new Indigenous question at patient registration – CBC

As of this week, patients can now self-identify as First Nations, Métis or Inuit

Jul 31, 2019

This week, patients registering at Bluewater Health in Sarnia and Petrolia were asked a new question: “Would you like to self-identify as First Nations, Métis or Inuit?”

The question is being asked to allow the hospital to better serve Indigenous patients by referring them to Nikki George, Bluewater’s Indigenous Patient Navigator — also a member of Kettle & Stony Point First Nation.

“Bluewater Health has been working for a number of years now with local [Indigenous] communities,” said George. “Now that I’ve been here a year, I need access to these patients … there really wasn’t a great way of me [knowing] when Indigenous patients and families were here.”
