The Ontario Government has introduced full public reporting on nine patient safety indicators as part of a comprehensive plan to create an unprecedented level of transparency in Ontario’s hospitals.

As of September 30, 2008, all Ontario hospitals are required to publicly report on C. difficile rates in their facilities through a public website and on each hospital’s own website. These rates are reported on a monthly basis. The remaining indicators are reported as per the chart below.

Please visit the links on the right side of this page to understand how rates are calculated and what each indicator means, or visit Health Quality Ontario’s website to see how we compare to other hospitals in Ontario.

Please Note: This Reporting affects our Complex Continuing Care Site known as Hotel Dieu Hospital – Cornwall.
