Infection Prevention & Control Reporting

Muskoka Algonquin Healthcare has been a leader since 2006 in public reporting of our infection rates through our organization's Balanced Scorecard.  When the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care mandated public reporting in September of 2008, this was already part of our culture of safety.  Our Infection Prevention and Control program includes:

  • Surveillance
  • Education
  • Policy development and review
  • Continuous quality improvement

The public reporting required by the Ministry gives the public accurate information about where there are patient safety issues, and what is being done to address them.  MAHC is required to regularly report on seven patient safety indicators.  Historic results are available through Health Quality Ontario's Patient Safety Public Reporting Website.  Please use the link to search either of Muskoka Algonquin Healthcare's hospital sites to review the patient safety indicators and how we are performing.  Scroll to the bottom of the page to "Explore the Results" and search "by individual hospital results" using the hospital's location or name.
