Obstetric Day Unit (ODU)

The ODU is an outpatient unit for obstetric patients who need frequent tests, observation or medication but who do not need a full hospital admission. It is located on the 15th Level in Room 15-206 and is staffed by one RN. The unit is open from 8:30am to 4:30pm Monday to Friday (except statutory holidays). It closes for an hour for lunch 12:30-1:30.

The ODU also does 2 inductions of labour with prostaglandin gel each day. Patients are referred by the obstetrician/family doctor/midwife for this as well as all other services offered. Please note that this is not a drop-in unit as patients need an appointment to be seen although same day appointments are usually available.

Patients can be referred for the following:

  • NST/fetal surveillance
  • Bloodwork and urinalysis
  • Blood pressure profile
  • IV medication eg Venofer
  • Blood products –IVIG, red packed cells, Rhogam
  • Wound assessment post c/section and wound care
  • Prep and aftercare of fetal procedures for patients who are less than 22 weeks gestation.
