Certificate of good health
Any resident shall, within no more than thirty (30) days of a request, supply a certificate of good health in accordance with the requirements of the establishment, or submit to a medical examination, also in accordance with the requirements of the establishment.
This article stipulates that, if your establishment asks you to provide a certificate of good health or submit to a medical examination, you must do so within 30 days. Thus, the establishment has to make such a request on reasonable grounds, within the prescribed deadlines, and not gratuitously. If these rules are not followed, this could constitute a violation of your integrity, dignity, and privacy, and that is contrary to the Charter of Human Rights and Freedoms, CQLR c. C-12, and the Civil Code of Quebec, CCQ-1991. The establishment must explain to you the reason (e.g., having you assessed by a second expert when you are on sick leave) why it is requiring a medical certificate or medical examination. When in doubt, please get in touch with the Federation.
The establishment shall administer free-of-charge a complete series of vaccinations against hepatitis A, hepatitis B, influenza and chickenpox to any resident who requests it.
The resident shall undergo, during his work hours and without charge, any examination, immunization or treatment required by the establishment.
Such examinations, immunizations and treatments required by the establishment shall be related to the work to be performed or necessary for the resident’s protection.
In most establishments, the Health and Safety Office is responsible for administering vaccinations. It must offer you, without charge, during work hours, vaccination against hepatitis A, hepatitis B, influenza, and chickenpox.
Establishment’s health department
The establishment agrees to register the resident with the establishment’s health and safety department, so that the resident may receive the services usually provided for personnel of the establishment. The resident’s medical file thus established shall be transferred, as required, to the establishment where the resident continues his training.
All documents concerning an absence on medical grounds must be forwarded to your establishment’s Health and Safety Office, and not the Teaching Office.
