Ventilator Associated Pneumonia

Ventilator Associated Pneumonia (VAP) Rate Reporting

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

We have a number of practices in place to help prevent and control infections, including a comprehensive hand hygiene program. All Ontario hospitals are required to post quarterly Ventilator Associated Pneumonia (VAP) rates to further promote accountability and transparency within the health system.
