The Department of Health and Wellness has been working closely with the Public Health Agency of Canada and partners throughout the Nova Scotia health system to prepare for the unlikely event of an Ebola virus disease case in the province.
REPORTING OF PATIENT SAFETY INDICATORS
IPCNS provides support for the public reporting of patient safety indicators such as hand hygiene adherence monitoring and healthcare-associated Clostridium difficile infection rates in acute care facilities.
We provide the support for the IP&C needs of the other sectors of the system that provide health related services to help facilitate a more integrated system.
