A cornerstone of accountability in our provincial health care system is the agreement each health care provider enters into with its Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) to qualify for funding from the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care.

Broader Public Sector Accountability

Patient Safety-Indicators

Patient safety is about constantly working to avoid, manage and treat unsafe acts within the healthcare system. On a day-to-day basis, it translates into actions such as monitoring for the spread of infection, educating staff, patients and families about hand hygiene, using the best sterilization processes for equipment, providing a safe, clean physical environment, and much more.
