This web page contains reports on premises where an infection prevention and control lapse was identified through the assessment of a complaint or referral, or through communicable disease surveillance. It doesn’t include reports of premises which were investigated following a complaint or referral, but where no infection prevention and control lapse was ultimately identified.
These reports are not exhaustive and don’t guarantee that those premises not listed are free of infection prevention and control lapses. Identification of lapses is based on assessment and investigation of a premise at a point-in-time. These assessments and investigations are triggered when potential infection prevention and control lapses are brought to the attention of the local Medical Officer of Health.
Reports are posted on the website of the board of health in which the premise is located. Reports are posted on a premises-by-premises basis, i.e. will correspond with one site only. Pursuant to Ministry of Health and Long Term Care requirements, once an investigation is completed, the Final Report will be posted for a period of no less than one year from the time all corrective actions were completed.
Should you wish a full investigation report for any posted lapse, please contact the Infectious Disease Team at 519-426-6170 Ext. 3232.
