VRE Intro

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.
