Practical informations

Your visit to the Institut Jules Bordet

On arrival

The secretaries at Reception provide you with information, take care of the administrative formalities and organise your care path. The departmental secretary is your main contact at Reception.

Your safety

Your valuables

The hospital is a public building where many people pass through. Despite the measures that have been put in place and our vigilance, the risk of objects being stolen exists. Never leave them unsupervised. The hospital cannot be held liable for theft and losses.

If you are hospitalised, it is sometimes possible to leave your valuables at Admissions Reception. Ask the nurse.
The single rooms in the surgical departments have a safe in which you can put your possessions in complete safety.

Tell the nurse of any problems straightaway. She will warn the internal security service.
