Infection Prevention and Control

Lake of the Woods District Hospital priority is to ensure quality patient care and safety through transparency. Our infection control program is in place to ensure that our patients are not at risk for contracting health care-associated infections, and we are committed to transparency by using provincial standardized patient safety data collection and public reporting.

It is important to understand that the reporting of these rates is not the solution to reducing the rates of healthcare associated infections. This gives us data and information in understanding where patient safety issues may exist and take action to improve.
