As a way of being more open and accountable to the public, all Ontario hospitals, including Guelph General Hospital, are reporting their Patient Safety Indicators. Our hospital strongly supports this public reporting system because we believe it will inspire improved performance, enhance patient safety and strengthen the public’s confidence in Ontario’s hospitals.
At the same time, it’s important to understand that the reporting of these rates is not the overall solution to reducing the rates of healthcare associated infections. The reports are tools to provide hospitals with good information to assist us in understanding where patient safety issues exist and help us to take action to improve our safety standards.
Our patients at Guelph General Hospital should know that their hospital is safe and every effort is made to ensure we provide quality patient-centred care.
