What is NHH doing to control the spread of nosocomial infections?

Infections pose an ongoing challenge for all hospitals, both within Ontario and around the world. At any time of the year, NHH may have patients in isolation with any one of a series of infectious conditions such as Clostridium Difficile. The most important concern is ensuring that processes are in place to ensure that these cases are identified and managed in such a way that the risk of further infection is minimized. Below is a list of some of the measures currently in place at NHH.
