Public reporting of our infection rates is important because it will allow us to work with a standardized approach across the province. Our commitment to our patients is one of safety and continuous improvement. If our rates rise above our baseline, then we will: look internally at our hospital’s processes, consult externally with experts; identify areas for improvement, and implement strategies to reduce C. difficile in our organization.
St. Francis Memorial Hospital posts its infection rates online on a monthly basis. On this website, you can find information about hospital-acquired infection rates for C. difficile.
