Public Reporting of Patient Safety Indicators
Health care-associated infections occur everywhere. Prevention and control of these infections in hospitals is a priority for Health Quality Ontario and is key to keeping patients safe. The Health Quality Ontario (HQO) website reports to the public about patient safety in Ontario hospitals. Public reporting is a way of encouraging transparency and accountability in our publicly funded health care system. By making data available to the public, HQO can help Ontarians stay informed about the quality of care that is provided to hospital patients.
As part of the Ontario government's public reporting of patient safety indicators, all hospitals are required to publicly report on their infection rates. At NDMH, we report monthly on 4 out of 9 indicators related to patient safety at Ontario hospitals.
