There are no outbreaks of VRE at St. Francis Memorial Hospital.
On the last day of each quarter beginning December 30, 2008, SFMH along with all Ontario hospitals will be required to publicly report on their own websites
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: internally at our hospital’s processes; consult externally with experts; identify areas for improvement and implement strategies to reduce VRE bacteremia in our organization.
