Infection Prevention and Control (IPAC)

The goal of the infection prevention and control (IPAC) program at CAMH is to prevent the transmission of infections in the health care environment between patients, staff, visitors, and other contacts. IPAC also provides guidance on all infection control related matters concerning patients across the hospital. IPAC team ensures compliance with infection control best practice standards and guidelines. IPAC works to increase the quality and safety of patient care by identifying sources of infection and preventing their spread through surveillance, consultation, audits and education to staff, patients and visitors.

As of September, 2008, the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care has implemented an initiative requiring all Ontario hospitals to publicly report the rates of various hospital-acquired infections. CAMH participates in the Ministry’s public reporting initiative and believes that public reporting of rates will assist in continuous performance improvement and enhancement of patient safety.

For the specific MOHLTC required reportable hospital-acquired infection rates at CAMH, select any of the following categories:
