Patient Safety Indicators

Infection Rates and Prevention

To support the provincial government’s new public reporting regime and to continue to enhance our quality and safety program, the NBRHC (previously NBGH and NEMHC) will begin to report a number of infection rates as they relate to health care associated infections. Public reporting will allow us to establish a baseline from which we can track our rates over time. If we feel our rates have risen above our baseline, we can look internally at our processes, identify areas for improvement, and implement strategies to reduce the incidence of these infections in our organization. Patients should know that your hospital is safe, that the care you receive here is excellent, and that every effort is being made to ensure you continue to receive safe, high quality care.

The following indicators will be posted, both here and on the Health Quality Ontario website.
