Patient Safety Indicators

St. Thomas Elgin General Hospital takes the care and safety of our patients very seriously and we are committed to the transparency and continuous improvement of our care and services. The Ontario government is introducing full public reporting on eight patient safety indicators.

Our hospital strongly supports the provincial government’s introduction of full public reporting on eight patient safety indicators. We believe it will inspire improved performance, enhanced patient safety and strengthen the public’s confidence in Ontario’s hospitals.
