London Health Sciences Centre has had city-wide infection monitoring programs, with quarterly reports to staff and leadership in place.
A number of initiatives are underway to help control hospital-acquired infections. These include the early identification through screening of patients who carry MRSA. LHSC also uses audit tools to provide data on compliance rates for things such as hand hygiene and monitoring the hospital’s rates of MRSA. Carefully monitoring the data aids us in making quality improvements in our organization.
All direct care staff are given infection control education on hire and all new and current direct care givers complete the new Ministry of Health and Long Term Care core teaching on infection control
