New policy at Windsor Regional Hospital for Indigenous ceremonies – CTV Windsor News

June 18, 2019

Windsor Regional Hospital has a new policy in effect to better accommodate patient requests for Indigenous ceremonies.

The Indigenous Practice Protocol outlines a step-by-step process detailing how traditional ceremonies, including smudging, can be safely conducted in a timely and respectful manner at each hospital campus.

Smudging is the Indigenous practice of burning sacred herbs and medicines including tobacco, sage, sweet grass and cedar as part of a ritual, or for cleansing or health purposes.

It can involve brushing the smoke created over the body of the participant. Smudging is commonly done during times of sickness and at end of life.
