As part of the provinical government's public reporting of patient safety indicators, all hospitals are required to publicly report on their infection rates.

Temiskaming Hospital publicly reports on several patient safety indicators to promote accountability and transparency within the health system and immediately reports Clostridium Difficile (C. difficile) outbreaks to our local public health units so that Medical Officers of Health have the information they need to monitor and respond to emergent outbreaks.
