Patient Safety Indicators

When it comes to your health, YOU are the most important advocate. We encourage you to be an active participant in your treatment plan.

Patient safety remains the most important priority for Woodstock Hospital and this involves ensuring that patients are not at risk for contracting healthcare-associated infections.

The Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care identifies a number of safety indicators that all hospitals are required to publicly report their rates. Woodstock Hospital strongly supports these initiatives, as the transparency is believed to encourage improved performance, enhance patient safety and strengthen the public’s confidence in the provincial healthcare system.
