CHIREC applies an active anti-theft policy. It is difficult, however, to supervise all the comings and goings in the various sites of the Group.

The management therefore cannot be held responsible for the possible loss or theft of, or damage to, objects of value

If necessary (emergency admissions) you can leave valuables - with the help of a nurse if needed - at the entrance hall (this service is not available at the Braine-l'Alleud-Waterloo hospital) or in the safe in your room (private rooms have a personal safe with a user-selected code). In two- and four-bedded rooms, a safe can be hired from the nurse in charge of the department. 

All the rooms are equipped with toilets. In certain units, rooms also have a shower. Each patient has their own wardrobe that can be locked. An accompanying person may stay with you but only in the case of a private room and with the payment of asupplement. If you wish to keep food in the fridge of the unit, do not hesitate to ask a member of the healthcare staff.
