Patient Safety Indicators

Riverside Health Care is committed to providing a safe and caring environment. RHC strongly supports the public reporting of patient safety indicators because we believe it will inspire improved performance, enhance patient safety, and strengthen the public's confidence.

The public reporting required by the Ministry gives the public accurate information about where there are patient safety issues, and what is being done to address them.  RHC is required to regularly report on several patient safety indicators.  Historic results are available through Health Quality Ontario’s Patient Safety Public Reporting Website.  Please use the link to search any of RHC's hospital sites to review the patient safety indicators and how we are performing.  Scroll to the bottom of the page to "Explore the Results" and search "by individual hospital results" using the hospital's name listed below.
